About

Mountain Wisdom:  Mountain Folk is a site dedicated to the people, faith, place, 139_139culture, and folklore of Appalachia.

Collecting stories, history, superstitions, photographs, and folklore has been a rewarding challenge over the last 40 years.  Listening, watching, photographing, and gathering bits and pieces about this region has been a labor of love.

Appalachia is a place where much of our nation’s population finds deep roots.  Those represented in this collection of work are among them.

This webpage is dedicated to the people of Appalachia and the place with all of its beauty, challenges, and hopes of many over the years.
