ABC News spent two years following children growing up in poverty in the mountains of eastern Kentucky. Isolated pockets in central Appalachia have three times the national poverty rate, an epidemic of prescription drug abuse, the shortest life span in the nation, toothlessness, cancer and chronic depression [ FEBRUARY 2009 ] CLICK TO WATCH THE ENTIRE DOCUMENTARY : http://abcnews.go.com/Video/playerIndex?id=6877502 __________________________ The oldest mountains in America are rich in natural beauty with their raging creeks, steep hollows and old pines. They are also one of the poorest, most disadvantaged regions in America. Central Appalachia has up to three times the national poverty rate, an epidemic of prescription drug abuse, the shortest life span in the nation, toothlessness, cancer and chronic depression. But everywhere in these hills, there are also young fighters filled with courage and hope. Settled by tough pioneers who clawed their way over the Appalachian Mountains to expand America's borders, the region has produced some of the fiercest military fighters the country has seen. Like their ancestors before them, the children of the mountains are born fighters, and for two years, ABC News has documented the unique challenges some of these rural children face as they chase after their dreams. Courtney, 12, hopes for a home for her and her family. "We're not like other people, we can't afford food after food after food," she said.
