Synopsis

According to Ramona Lampell, Appalachia is often associated with hillbilles and poor people. The Lampells wanted to change that stereotype with their book, "O, Appalachia: Artists of the Southern Mountains". By showing off the work of 20 artists', the Lampells hope the people of Appalachia feel good about themselves and where they come from.
