This book portrays the natives as ignorant, unintelligent, simple, and a backward group of people. Offensive. Not to be mocked. Not to belittle. Not to underestimate.
Only a fool would believe himself superior due to formal education. Some knowledge is not taught in school.
This book toots the author's own horn. The dangers in the Appalachians are real. Dramatized dangers of the author was under-rated.
