Here's the story I saw this science fiction anthology at a used bookstore.  I went to look for some other books.  When I came back the SF anthologies had been moved around.  I did not remember the title of the book, and I did not have time to search through the SF anthologies again.

 

Be that as it may, here is my search:  This SF Anthology had a story in it that was described as what happened when some outer space aliens landed in the Appalachian Mountains and encountered some Hillbillys.

 

If you have read this story, or know the name of the anthology would you, please, post information here?

 

Thank you.

Sincerely,

 

 

David

I remember a story like that where a single alien was stranded in hillbilly country, and it turned out it needed ethanol to live and drank moonshine.  Does that sound like it?  I think it was a Joe Haldeman story, but I can't remember which collection it was in.
