I stand corrected.

However, having spent a lot of time in both Appalachia and the Ozarks, I feel that those locales are strikingly similar. Virtually interchangeable in fact.

I had forgotten that Hope Floats was set in Texas - of course it is. So let me rephrase that - small town, rural, and very culturally southern Texas - Hope Floats personifies that feeling, which is very similar to the feeling of small town, rural, northwestern Louisiana.
