Walk Till the Dogs Get Mean—Appalachian Outsiders Tell All, a collection of essays edited by Adrian Blevins (English) and Karen McElmurray, was the subject of an extensive review in The Read on WNC, an online journal. “As 31 authors show, you can’t judge a region by its cover story. For it’s not just outsiders who feel estranged by Appalachia’s code. Get a little closer, and you see individuals separating from the generalized flock, striving to come to terms with both their home culture and their differentness,” writes Rob Neufeld.
