16 of 17 people found the following review helpful By Paul King on April 16, 2002
Format: Hardcover
A book about a lesser known aspect of the failure of Johnson's "Great Society", "Stinking Creek" fairly describes the tug of war between a government that tries to "help" and an independent and sometimes proud culture that doesn't really want it. The book is filled with real people whose personalities are more richly and fully described than in any Dickens or Jakes novel. Although dated, the book portrays the bridge between the Roosevelt relief attempts and current welfare programs. Very readable.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
In the late 70s I was at Radford University completing a master's degree in history. One of the courses I took was Appalacian Studies. Fetterman's book was one our readings. Later as I began teaching I loaned my copy to a student and subsequently it was never returned. Then in the 70s I paid a few dollars for a paperback copy. Although the replacement with a hardbound copy was expensive, it was well worth it. Fetterman's book is a classic within literature about our Southern Highlanders.
