Highland homeland : the people of the Great Smokies by Wilma Dykeman( Book )

9 editions published between 1976 and 1978 in English and held by 528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More than 6,600 separate tracts of land, purchased by the citizens of Tennessee and North Carolina and given to the people of the United States in 1934, comprise the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The history of the Great Smokies is, therefore, a story of people and their home. This volume presents historical vignettes of the groups who founded the region: the Cherokees who built a way of life in harmony with nature; the pioneers who cleared the land of trees and stones to cultivate crops; the trailblazers who constructed roads that challenged rough terrain and mountain ranges; the mountaineers who developed proud individualism and fierce clan loyalties; the loggers who brought manpower, sophisticated equipment, railroads, and fires. Among the many individuals featured are: Sequoyah (known to whites as George Gist), developer of the Cherokee alphabet; Yonahguskah, counselor chief of the Cherokees; Arnold Gryot, Swiss geographer and mapper of the Smokies; Edward Clarence Conner, settler and diarist; Horace Kephart, initiator of the movement for a national park; and Major J. Ross Eakin, first park superintendent. Detailed are distinctive regional features: rail fences, sourwood, ginseng, rifle making, spinning and weaving, mountain music, folk beliefs, handicrafts, and cemeteries. Included are historic photographs, many taken in the 1930's, from the files of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. (Nec)

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Home to the oldest mountains on the planet and the richest forests in North America -- within a mosaic of diverse habitats and cultures, Appalachia tells the story of a people struggling to find a true and proper relationship to the natural world ... Time and Terrain begins the tale -- the birth of the mountains, the evolution of the forest, the arrivals of the Native-Americans [sic] and the Europeans. Appalachia appears on the map for the first time ... [In] New Green World ... the contrasting attitudes of Native Americans and European settlers toward the mountains and the rich land bring bloodshed, tragedy, and longterm consequences for all forms of life ... [In] Mountain Revolutions ... the American Civil War tears a prospering, agrarian region apart -- politically, economically, and spiritually -- setting the stage for railroads, land buyers and vast, unpredictable change ... Power and Place [shows] the effects of unchecked industrialization -- floods, forest fires, erosion and poverty -- awakening a busy nation to its responsibilities toward the mountains, the forests, the wildlife, and the people"--Containers

The Electric valley( Visual )

5 editions published between 1983 and 1998 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tennessee Valley Authority -- TVA -- was a project like no other, and after more than a half-century, continues to shape life in the South. The Electric Valley is the first independent film to tell the story of TVA, a tale of one of the most interesting, controversial federal agencies ever created. In 1933 TVA was given the broadest possible mission: to tame the forces of nature, create cheap energy, and produce a lasting prosperity in the Depression-wracked Tennessee Valley, a region the size of Great Britain. For better or worse, it touched peoples' lives in innumerable ways. The film is both political parable and human drama, a narrative journey through fifty years of American history with this controversial institution as its focus. It explores both the issues and the people who give these issues power and poignancy. Indeed, The Electric Valley puts a human face on one of the most remarkable institutions of our time
