Between the 1940s and 1970s the mountains of Appalachia were viewed as a center for economic and employment opportunities. Over three million people chased the American dream to the mountains in search of a better life for themselves and their families. Unfortunately, about a third of these people were forced into a life of long-term underclass dwellers. Struggling with questions of identity, rootlessness, and cultural negation these people were given the name of ""urban Appalachians."" Published in 1987, Too Few Tomorrows addresses some of the pressing questions regarding urban Appalachians and their story of migration and early experiences in the mountains.
