Appalachian Wilderness : The Great Smoky Mountainsby Edward Abbey, Harry M. Caudill (Epilogue by), Eliot Porter (Photographer)
In this handsomely produced book Eliot Porter catches and holds the majestic beauty of the Appalachian wilderness. Veiled mountains, big woods, wild flowers and highland streams are among the scenes, faithfully reproduced here in four colors, that readers will return to again and again. In contrast to Elliot Porter's enchanting natural world is the harsh human history of the Appalachians --the blighting force of today's industrial tourism, the sad fate of the Cherokee Indians and the mountaineers who followed them, sensitively recorded here by Edward Abbey.
