| Book Description: |
The Great Smoky Mountains are among the oldest mountains in the world and the highest in the Appalachian Mountain chain. These peaks and ridges have been both a daunting obstacle and a source of inspiration since the earliest people set foot in the area. Long before humans arrived, geologic processes, climatic shifts, weather, and fire shaped this environment, producing a dynamic ecosystem.
