Handicrafts of the Southern Highlands - Allen H. Eaton Allen Eaton's 1937 study of the people of southern Appalachia and their crafts is an invaluable source of information on more than just log cabins, cane-bottom chairs, and corn husk dolls. Illustrated with over 100 black and white photographs, Handicrafts of the Southern Highlands offers a masterful portrait of the people, the history, and the crafts of a large rural region, often poor in cash money but not in culture. I consider this book absolutely essential for anyone who wishes to understand how important a tradition of "making things" is to a morally, let alone economically, healthy society.
