© 2019 -  Joshua Wilkey - This Appalachian Life

To celebrate the first anniversary of This Appalachia Life, I compiled a book of my most popular essays from the first year of the website. It is available in print and Kindle editions. Click the book cover to the left to purchase. 

And, in progress: A work of narrative nonfiction based on my most popular essay, "My Mother Wasn't Trash," as well as a book tentatively titled Decolonizing Appalachia, which explores Appalachian history through the lens of colonization and reveals the ways the region has functioned as an exploited internal resource colony.
