Globalization in Appalachia’s Cast Iron Skillet

Bearded banjo picker or not, I already feel somewhat disconnected as a nouveau Appalachian. I feel like a great disappointment to my culture because my child will likely grow up a Midwesterner out in the endless flat lands of northwest Tennessee rather than under the tearful beauty of a Smoky Mountain sunrise. Nothing against Midwestern folk. They are pert near the nicest people I’ve ever met, and they even hold the door for you at WalMart, but they aren’t my kin…my banjo-picking, tobacco-spitting, deer hunter kin.
