The Appalachians are on the East coast. The mass media often confuse them because of similarities between them economically and culturally. It is analogous to conflating Compton and Harlem. I found that the book Winter's Bone to be VERY true to life as I knew it growing up in the Missouri Ozarks. It is a deeply impoverished, under educated, intolerant and hateful place. The land is beautiful. The people are strong and smart in the ways of survival but completely lacking in sympathy for non-WASP people.

I see you've corrected your previous mistake of calling this Appalachia. For you, what's the difference between Appalachia and the Ozarks? None. Impoverished people with a southern accent? Must be hillbillies. You Canadians are all alike.
