In 1908 John C. Campbell was commissioned by the Russell Sage Foundation to conduct a survey of conditions in Appalachia and the aid work being done in these areas to create "the central repository of data concerning conditions in the mountains to which workers in the field might turn." Originally published in 1921, The Southern Highlander and His Homeland details Campbell's experiences and findings during his travels in the region, observing unique aspects of mountain communities such as their religion, family life, and forms of entertainment. Campbell's landmark work paved the way for folk schools, agricultural cooperatives, handicraft guilds, the frontier nursing service, better roads, and a sense of pride in mountain life―the very roots of Appalachian preservation.

About the Author:

John C. Campbell (1867-1919) served as dean and president of Piedmont College in Georgia from 1901 to 1907. The John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, North Carolina, was founded by his widow in 1925

Review:

"More than 90 years after its initial publication . . . it is distressing to discover just how many of Campbell's observations still ring true."―Lexington Herald-Leader

"One of the most enduring works of folklore of the Appalachian region."―Western Folklore

"An Appalachian studies classic. . . . It's republication gives us the opportunity to reengage with this classic, in the context of 1921 and in that of our changed Appalachia."―Journal of Appalachian Studies

"Campbell's landmark work paved the way for folk schools, agricultural cooperatives, handicraft guilds, the frontier nursing service, better roads, and a sense of pride in mountain life―the very roots of Appalachian preservation."―Pointsville Herald
