Where some see stereotypes, author Ronni Lundy sees wisdom and resourcefulness. She views her connections to the southern Appalachian Mountains as “a beautiful and remarkable gift.” And in Victuals (Clarkson Potter, 2016), explores the ties between the land and the people who rely on its bounty. As it turns out, Lundy writes, her people were right about victuals all along – in pronunciation (viddles), practice and sentiment.
