Coal River Folklife Project collection( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Coal River Folklife Project is an ethnographic field project documenting traditional customs and land use in the mountains of southern West Virginia's Big Coal River Valley from 1992 to 1999 conducted by the American Folklife Center, Library of Congress. Collection materials include manuscripts, sound recordings, photographs, videorecordings and related research materials gathered by project team members, directed by Mary Hufford of the American Folklife Center. There are extensive interviews with local residents on the seasonal harvesting of natural resources--ginseng, ramps (wild leeks), berries, nuts, fish, and game--on occupations, including coal mining and lumbering; and on the impact of large scale industries such as logging and mountaintop removal mining on local communities. Cultural and religious community events were a focus of the project, including storytelling, community dinners and foodways, baptisms, and cemetery customs. In addition to photographs taken by fieldworkers, the collection contains a large number of documentary photographs by Lyntha Scott Eiler and Terry Eiler
