Description - Our Southern Highlanders by Horace Kephart

No other book on the Southern Appalachians is more widely known or cited. "Awonderful book. I like it especially for its color and anecdotes. It is a classic, not only for its accuracy and breadth of insights into the people of the region, but because these people themselves are so interesting and strong." Annie Dillard, author of Pilgrim at Tinker Creek"

Author Biography - Horace Kephart

Before coming the mountains, Horace Kephart (1862-1931) served as librarian of the prestigious Mercantile Library in St. Loius. His significant work, however, was done after he came to live in the Southern Appalachians in 1904. He played important roles in the establishment of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the Appalachian Trail.
