The Appalachian photographs of Doris Ulmann by Doris Ulmann( Book )
2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 558 libraries worldwide
" ... These eloquent photographs of our vanishing American peasantry, ridiculed by the middle class as hillbillies, disclose a character that is altogether humbling ... To look at the lined, weathered faces of Christopher Lewis, Ella Webster, and Mrs. Bird Patten is to be reminded of the humanity and rooted communal life of these Southern Americans who are counted now simply as bureaucratic statistics in the poverty program. The recovery of Doris Ulmann's portraiture is typical of Jargon's cultural husbandry."[4]

Jubilant thicket : new & selected poems by Jonathan Williams( Book )
5 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 348 libraries worldwide
"Jubilant Thicket teems with the eccentric, strange, and boundlessly authentic - neoclassical poems, social satire, musical suites, limericks and lyrics. 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

Blues & roots, rue & bluets : a garland for the southern Appalachians by Jonathan Williams( Book )
5 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 257 libraries worldwide
Jonathan Williams's poetry has been described as brilliant, sensuous, lyrical, quirky, suave, vital, joyful, sardonic, melodious, passionate, alive, pyrotechnic. This new, much enlarged edition of Blues and Roots displays all of the above. Williams has tramped the Appalachian Trail for decades, botanizing, jotting down specimens of authentic American speech, graffiti, superstitions, and nostrums-always curious, alert, and affectionately attentive. Blues and Roots focuses on the linguistic horizon of Appalachia in lyrics of wonder and light, of wit and comic incongruity, in found poems of the s

"If any place of the past century spawned originals like a breeding box, it was Black Mountain College, and among its many illustrious graduates is one Jonathan Williams, poet, publisher, raconteur, and eclectic collector of like spirits. In this book, Williams has made the rounds and produced his inventory of poets, painters, writers and artists whose only commonality is their unequivocal distinction." "This is a collection of extraordinary personalities captured on film in Williams's revealing, unpretentious casually evocative photographs, and decoded through Williams's intimate, often hilarious, extended captions and essays."--Jacket
