W.Va. Dogs Fly To Forever Homes And A New Book From Ron Rash, This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, the power of collaboration was evident at West Virginia International Yeager Airport this week as three organizations joined forces for a “dog-gone-good” cause. Caroline MacGregor reports.

Also, in this show, Appalachian writer Ron Rash has written more than 20 books, including several that have appeared on the New York Times bestseller list. His latest is called The Caretaker, set in a small, Appalachian town during the Korean War. Inside Appalachia Producer Bill Lynch spoke with Rash about the book, Appalachia and getting older.

And, our Mountain Stage Song of the Week comes to us from Alisa Amador. We listen to her performance of “Slow Down.” It’s the second track on Amador’s EP, Narratives.
