             Historical note 
             In August, 1979, writer Gurney Norman, under the auspices of the University of Kentucky's Appalachian Center, submitted a proposal to the Witter Bynner Foundation for Poetry to 
                 identify, recognize and nurture the poets of the central Appalachian region  by organizing poetry workshops in regional communities and ultimately to publish a poetry anthology. The Foundation funded the project and in January 1980 the work began with poets George Ella Lyons and Bob Henry Baber acting as executive director and consulting director, respectively. The grant period ended in December 1980 and the project was never refunded. As of August 1987, the anthology had not been published.
