Overview


Predating the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the

Blue Ridge Parkway, the Appalachian Trail was established in the

1920s. Yet even after volunteers had begun the pathway's construction,

its southern terminus was still undetermined. The more than 200

vintage photographs of Images of America: Along the Appalachian

Trail: Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennessee have been culled from

the Appalachian Trail Conservancy, National Park Service, local

trail maintaining clubs, state archives, and historical societies. They

illustrate the sweat, toil, and dedication that went into building the

trail over some of Eastern America's highest and most rugged terrain.

Also chronicled are the people who lived along the trail's route, those

who volunteered to physically build it or lobby for its creation, and the

many relocations that have moved the pathway to optimal locations.
