He conveys a vivid sense of the natural and human history of these still-wonderful mountains. Even more impressive is the way he relates the two in analyzing the problems and possibilities of life in the Black Mountains in coming decades. This book is both a major contribution to our regional literature and a model of what an "environmental history" can and should be. (Christopher Camuto, author of "A Fly Fisherman's Blue Ridge").

Nice, informative book about the Black Mountains of North Carolina. The info in this book may be a bit outdated by now since the observation platform at the top of the mountain has been rebuilt, but still a lot of good history in this book. The seller (Bird's Nest Books) was very nice and included a cute bookmark with the sale. Recommended.
