Inez is in the heart of Eastern Kentucky, so it’s pretty amazing looking. It’s all rolling hills and deep hollers (that’s “hollows” to you Northerners).
Even with its grab bag of problems (drug addiction, abject poverty, ecological Armageddon), most of Inez is, on the surface, a bucolic little Eden. In fact, Eden was the town’s original name.
