Elegies And Effigies

Who speaks for Appalachia? It's been called Trump Country, coal country and backcountry. But it's our country.

Vance, author of "Hillbilly Elegy." | Want to support 1A? Subscribe to our podcast and give to your local public radio station at donate.npr.org/1A. Email the show at 1a@wamu.org.
