The Appalachian photographs of Doris Ulmann by Doris Ulmann( Book )
2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 554 libraries worldwide
" ... These eloquent photographs of our vanishing American peasantry, ridiculed by the middle class as hillbillies, disclose a character that is altogether humbling ...

There is spleen, salt, and a delicious sarcasm, as Williams finds inspiration in Mahler and Mojo Nixon, William Blake and whimmy-diddles. Always in knowing command, he serves up an admixture of "found" and vernacular language, invented and archaic forms, jokes, shock, literary allusions, and political disgust."--Jacket
