Summary Andrew L. Slap's Reconstructing Appalachia examines life in Appalachia after the ravages of the Civil War, an unexplored area that represents a void in historical literature. Addressing a gap in the chronicles of our nation, this vital anthology explores little-known aspects of history with a particular emphasis on the Reconstruction and post-Reconstruction periods. Acclaimed scholars John C. Inscoe and Ken Fones-Wolf are joined by up-and-comers like Mary Ella Engel, Anne E. Marshall, and Kyle Osborn in a unique collection of essays investigating postwar Appalachia with clarity and precision. Featuring a broad geographic focus, these compelling essays cover postwar events in Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, Tennessee, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania. This approach yields an intimate portrait of Appalachia as a diverse collection of communities where the values of place and family are of crucial importance
