Whenever I just need to relax and enjoy, Carl Hiaasen is the author to whom I turn. He is a really great writer (unlike most mass-market-paperback authors) and his books have just the right combination of sarcasm, humor, romance & mystery. http://media-cache5.pinterest.com/upload/261349584595324441_L3infn9L_f.jpg d1johnson books worth reading
Tradition, community, and pride are fundamental aspects of the history of Appalachia, and the language of the region is a living testament to its rich heritage.

Talking Appalachian examines these distinctive speech varieties and emphasizes their role in expressing local history and promoting a shared identity.
