It Takes Unity
Stories from Members of the Southern Appalachian Mountain Stewards
There’s a reason why people do things, there’s a reason why people organize their communities. These are the stories of a few members of the Southern Appalachian Mountain Stewards, the stories of what got them involved with fighting back against the coal companies that most of them worked for, the stories of their relationship to the mountains, and the things that they envision for their communities.
