This book’s history and people, their tradition of independence, and wonderful descriptions of nature, rivers, and hills made me feel like I had been dropped right down into the mountains in the 17th century. This area was settled by Germans and Scotch-Irish dating from 1730, although Native Americans lived here for nearly 11,000 years before European settlers penetrated the mountain ranges. Many of the early trails ended up as national highways, and today Skyline highway leading to Pinnacle Mountain has a view of six states: Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama. All in all, I found this a good read and a book to keep for the history of the Blue Ridge Country.
