Terry Huffman is professor of education in the Doctor of Educational Leadership Program at George Fox University, Newberg.
During a time of significant mischaracterization of the rural communities of Appalachia, this book serves as an authentic testament to the resolve and courage of the people of McDowell County, West Virginia. As an ethnographic work, Huffman makes ample space for stories of tribulation and triumph for those seeking educational excellence in times of social and economic distress. This text is an unflinching look at the true heart of a misunderstood community.
