This is the last of a four part PBS documentary series on the natural and human history of Appalachia.
Throughout the series, Appalachian writers, artists, musicians and historians give voice to their
experiences and the themes develop through the use of archival and contemporary film and still photography
and through eyewitness accounts of historical events.
This is a special presentation in conjunction with Shepherd University's Appalachian Heritage Writer in
Post-film discussion led by Dr. Jerry Thomas, Professor of History Emeritus at Shepherd University.
