Disappearing Appalachia in Tennessee
A Picture of a Vanished Land and Its People
Harry Moore, Fred Brown
Stepping through time to past and present communities, settled in deep hollows and surrounded by ridges and mountains in Tennessee's Appalachia, is to confront a different and disappearing realm. Travel along Hogskin and Richland Valleys. Visit Frenches Mill and Dulaney General Store while passing cantilever barns, one-room school buildings and steepled churches. Listen as octogenarians Robert, Charles, Glenn and others explain life without electricity. Former Cades Cove residents Lois and Inez tell stories of living in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park before it was a national park. Authors Fred Brown, retired journalist, and Harry Moore, retired geologist, explore Tennessee's Appalachian region, recalling its culture, land and people before it vanishes into the abyss of time.
