Salt: Poems of Appalachian Roots
by Amber D. Tran
Dedicated to blue-collar lifestyles and family secrets, Salt: Poems of Appalachian Roots pays homage to those born and raised in the Appalachia and to those familiar with the tribulations that come with poverty and failure. Combined with historic photographs by Lewis Hine, Doris Ulmann, Russell Lee, and others, this book exposes the depth and burden of personal and social struggles found among people in the Appalachia, but also offers a glimpse into their stalwart dedication to persevere.
