The section on bibliographies and resource materials lists 15 compilations published since 1974. Appalachian history, culture, and politics are covered in 93 entries, which range from David Crockett's autobiography to a 1977 oral history of Appalachia. The language and literature section lists 29 primary prose sources, 10 secondary sources, and 39 primary poetry sources. Under music, arts, and crafts, nine sources published between 1968 and 1977 appear. A folklore section contains 19 listings. Five sources cover Appalachian flora and fauna. The section of anthologies and texts lists 18 sources published between 1970 and 1977. Thirty-four journals, magazines, and newletters are listed, from the "United Mine Workers Journal" to "Appalachian Heritage."
