Author of the much-celebrated Face of Appalachia, Tim Barnwell once again turns an intelligent and compassionate eye toward rural America.

For over twenty-five years Tim Barnwell has explored the southern Appalachian region, documenting the farm culture, visiting with and photographing the people of its isolated mountain enclaves.

The photographs in this collection provide a window onto a world that is quickly fading. Barnwell honors the richness and rhythms of everyday life—people in their homes and at work in the fields—and captures the beauty of the North Carolina mountains. These intimate portraits are complemented by oral histories, derived from conversations between the author and his subjects, through which individual stories unfold, rich in humor, joy, loss, and wisdom.
