African American and Cherokee Nurses in Appalachia: A History, 1900-1965 - Phoebe Ann Pollitt

When I first read the introduction to this book, I recognized that I was one of those people who just assumed that Appalachia was lily-white. Clearly, I had a lot to learn and this book was a big help.

The style is definitely scholarly, rather than narrative, and few, if any, individuals appear in more than one chapter. Still, it's a quick read and very informative, so I'd recommend it to anyone interested in Appalachia.
