About the Author:

Roberta Teague Herrin serves as chair of the Department of Appalachian Studies and the director of the Center for Appalachian Studies and Services at East Tennessee State University. Sheila Quinn Oliver is currently the director of Library Media Services at Broome High School in Spartanburg, South Carolina.

From School Library Journal:

The compilers have selected more than 2000 books set in the 13-state region and have included intelligent and interesting annotations for each one. The organization allows readers to search for a book in a number of different ways. The titles are listed alphabetically by author. An appendix lists all books and authors by grade levels; in addition, there are two indexes, one for author, title, illustrator and a second for subject matter. The annotations are thorough, yet succinct, making use of previously published reviews from sources such as the Horn Book Guide, Booklist, and School Library Journal. The compilers' goal is to "influence the future of Appalachian children's literature by exposing its strengths, weaknesses, and sometimes plain absurdities." This is a super resource for teachers and librarians, not just for those located in the Appalachian region, but for anyone interested in the world of children's literature.—Wendy Smith-D'Arezzo, Loyola College, Baltimore, MD
