Death and Dying in Central Appalachia: Changing Attitudes and Practices
In Death and Dying in Central Appalachia, James Crissman explores cultural traits related to death and dying in the Appalachian sections of Tennessee, Virginia, Kentucky, North Carolina, and West Virginia, showing how they have changed since the 1600's. Relying on archival materials, almost forty photographs, and interviews with more than 400 mountain dwellers, Crissman focuses on the importance of familism and 'neighborliness' in mountain society.
