A multiyear collaboration between the University of Arkansas and several high schools in rural Arkansas that encourages students to learn about and celebrate their region.

"This is a book to treasure. Most compelling are the voices of students as they question their elders and friends in order to re-imagine and re-dedicate themselves to a place they thought they knew. Read this book, savor this book, use this book."—Eli Goldblatt, author of Writing Home: A Literacy Autobiography

"A rich, compelling example of community literacy partnerships, The Arkansas Delta Oral History Project details how college and high school writers can work together to investigate their communities, develop persuasive representations, and engage in local social action."—Robert Brooke, professor of English, University of Nebraska

"The authors have two goals. The first is to offer rich qualitative data about what occurs when rural students, in partnership with university students, work on extended projects with topics of their own choosing. The second is to argue that such self-chosen and directed projects—authentic literacy projects—can actually have an effect on rural outmigration and rural residents’ desire and ability to improve their own communities. Both goals are important and timely."—Kim Donehower, coauthor of Rural Literacies
