Meet the Author

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.

After reading many books on appalachian history and adventuous pioneers of the smoky mountain region. I beleive Horace Kephart made his life a signature in writing this book,it is so vivid in detail that you will feel just as he did in his experieces. The only way to know what I am describing is to experience this word of marvel called OUR SOUTHERN HIGHLANDERS.
