hinterlander (plural hinterlanders)

  1. One who lives in the hinterland.
    • 2007 August 5, Jonathan Raban, “When Loggers Become Bloggers”, in New York Times[1]:
      The enduring suspicion of some rural hinterlanders is that the Northwest’s precious environment, of mountains, forest, ocean, is merely an urban weekend amenity, to be saved from the local yokels by crusading Seattleites who recoil from the prospect of actually living in it.
