The tone of the novel is very light and easy to read. Both those doing the interviews and those being interviewed have a simple style and mannerism that make the entire book highly enjoyable. In the Introduction, the tone is one of respect and pride, as Elliot Wigginton discusses small towns and his own experiences in them. In the piece on the lives of blacks in the Appalachians, the tone is often upbeat and full of hope, as these individuals have seen the world around them change for minorities.
