    Local writers give Insider' Guide the edge...

    Dick McHugh and Mitch Moore combine their considerable research and writing talents to produce a guide to the Great Smoky Mountains and surrounding region that is at once comprehensive and entertaining. As a local myself, I've heard just about every question asked by tourists and new arrivals to the Smokies. McHugh and Moore use their years of familiarity with the area to answer all questions, and throw in some humorous and helpful 'inside info' as well. A must-have book for anyone wanting to get the most out of their visit (or move) to the Great Smoky Mountains region.
