This was so cool. I must admit that all I know of Appalachian families is from movies, and though some show the side that you write about, most do lump everyone in with backwoods type people. It is strange how stereotypes take hold and the media and movies fan the flames and keep them going… and that is the end of my tangent.
Great post Rachel! Makes me want to go climb trees and run in the grass. 🙂


I really enjoyed reading this and I think we can all learn from the ways of the Appalachian momma! Especially love the passing on of recipes from generation to generation. You should teach us how to make good dumplings! 😉 Tweeted.


Read it. Loved it. Shared it. xoxo
