BeschreibungThis book is a genuine breakthrough in understanding both the type of protestant religion intrinsic to the Appalachian area and the origin of that peculiar type of religion.
Pressestimmen"No scholar of [mountain] culture, or of contemporary American regionalism, can afford to overlook this work... Students of American religious history and of folk culture should welcome McCauley's sensitive explication of traditionality in faith." -- Jordan Heckscher, American Studies International "In this remarkably comprehensive history of Appalachian Mountain religion, McCauley argues persuasively that mountain religion is not so much a 'counter' to mainstream Protestantism and Catholicism as an equally central American religious tradition with equally deep roots and radically different religious values -- values including humility, tolerance, integrity, and consensus, which are of particular importance today." -- ALA Booklist. "Should be required reading for all who would too quickly adopt a unitary label of 'southern evangelicalism.'" -- Religious Studies Review
