Read full description of the books Appalachian Legacy:The eighty photographs collected in this book were taken over the course of a quarter-century. They are Adams's study of people who give themselves honestly and openly before his camera. He focuses here on nine families that have been his recurring subjects during these years. His words that accompany the images reveal his long-term association with them and with their histories. Appalachian Legacy reflects the identity of Adams and his photography while capturing the indelible heritage of old Appalachia. It shows as well the new Appalachia absorbed by the American mainstream of television, trailer parks, and strip malls.
