Reviews

"Appalachia North is a lyrical homage to a region often misunderstood and overlooked. Ferrence's engulfing prose brings to life an Appalachia north of the Mason-Dixon line and he does it with the eye of an honest poet."
Associated Press


​"Matthew Ferrence pushes boundaries--literal and figurative--asking difficult questions of himself and of us all. He offers us new metaphors, new maps, new ways to understand ourselves and this world. Hold it, dear reader, and read."
Jim Minick, author of Fire Is Your Water


"Too often, Appalachian identity gets treated like it's (a) Southern and (b) the same for everyone. Matthew Ferrence's insightful, thoughtful essays show us a more refreshing complexity than either of these stereotypes allows. This is a must-read for anyone looking for deeper meaning about Appalachia and life within it."
Amanda Hayes, author of The Politics of Appalachian Rhetoric
