The Tennessee Valley

A Photographic Portrait

"Robert Kollar captures the diversity, color, and dramatic scale of life in the Tennessee Valley in this collection of 240 color photographs. He records the Friday night high school football games, county fairs, family reunions, and Sunday dinners that make the region so appealing. Kelly Leiter s text reveals the real people behind the faces-their concerns and their pride, their savvy, and their traditionalism."


"This book provides marvelous photographic insights into the daily life of the Valley, its people, workplaces, and visitors."—Bookman News

"Kollar's photos are the real stars, showing off everything from the Winterfest lights of Pigeon Forge and a Smoky Mountains sunset, to Elvis Presley's birth place in Tupelo, Miss., and The Grand Guitar alongside I-81 on the Tennessee-Virginia line."—Bristol (TN) Herald-Courier

"Kollar and Leiter focus on the small towns, rugged landscapes, and folkways that make the region a unique part of America"—Cleveland (TN) Banner

"It would be helpful if a volume like this one, examining the region in detail, could be published every decade. The text of this brief work is useful in amplifying data and clarifying some of the subtle and not-so-subtle changes that have transformed the Tennessee Valley in recent years."—Forum for Applied Research and Public Policy

"Leiter and Kollar focus on the small towns and the rugged beauty of the landscape and folkways that make the region a unique part of America."—Johnson City Press

"To their credit, they see everything—from stunning sunsets to stock car races, from Dolly Parton to polluting factories, from plowed earth to people of every persuasion"—Knoxville News-Sentinel

"To be Southern is to know place, and this is a book of place."—Magazine (Baton Rouge, LA)

"Kollar's photography is absolutely smashing."—Southern Seen
