The Stackhouses of Appalachia by Jacqueline Painter

Throughout The Stackhouses of Appalachia, Painter describes not only the fortunes, loves, and losses of a family, but also the fascinating details of day to day life in 19th century Appalachia.  Filled with historical facts, personal accounts, maps, illustrations and both black-and-white and color photographs, The Stackhouses of Appalachia: Even to Our Own Time is a must-read for anyone with an interest in the Stackhouse family, the American Quaker movement or the rugged realities of the post-Civil War period in the Appalachian Mountains. The photographs alone provide a lasting treasure for the true scholar of WNC history.
