Pittsburgh and the Appalachians

So this is not a book review as much as a pre-review before I get to reading it. I didn't catch this book published earlier in the year by the Univ. of Pittsburgh Press: Pittsburgh and the Appalachians. An interesting perspective for a region that tends to define itself narrowly. It really is true that Pittsburgh can be considered the largest city in Appalachia. Worth a look. Chapters include:
