Synopsis

Human character remains strong in these stories of life in Appalachia.

"Degrees of Elevation provides a variety of characters portrayed in their deepest and most exposed moments. You aren't likely to forget their stories. White and Seay have done us all a favor by gathering these remarkable stories together. White writes, "We do not believe any one view of Appalachia is a Truth entire. But somewhere in the patchwork, we have tried to present the hard beauty of the land and the history of a unique country and its people." They have succeeded. Degrees of Elevation is a wonderful collection that deserves to be read, savored, and remembered."- From New York Journal Book Review
