A History of Appalachia

I'm quite enjoying A History of Appalachia. OK, I've only read the first chapter, but it's written in a pretty engaging manner. And I wasn't even very interested in reading about the Native American inhabitants from over a thousand years ago, but Drake made it interesting.

I could see myself teaching a college course based out of this book.
