Fortunately, for all foodies and lovers of hearty food that feeds both body and soul, Joan Aller unearths a mother lode of southern Appalachian sustenance for "Cider Beans, Wild Greens, and Dandelion Jelly: Recipes from Southern Appalachia" --Appalachain News, May 19, 2010
"Joan Aller is an artist by profession and fearless by nature. No soon had she painted her mailbox than she was off, photographing barns and bridges and learning the ways of her new neighbors. That led quickly to food -- and five years of research. At the end, she had gorgeous photographs of Southern Appalachia, luscious photographs of Southern food, and 8,000 pages of recipes and history. The good news is that Ms. Aller and her editors put her work on a diet. The result is a 212-page book that was extravagantly handsome until my wife and I started dog-earing the pages. Silly us -- we want to cook almost everything here." --Huffington Post, June 24, 2010

So, if you're looking for a nice introduction to Southern cuisine, or Southern Appalachia cuisine in particular, with all the history and folklore that goes along with it, then this book is for you." --Project Foodie, July 10, 2010

The book offers many beautiful photos and sweet anecdotes but I feel it should have been presented more of a tour of the many Inns that dot the mountain towns.
I feel I could have saved my money had the description been more honestly presented.
