From Andre Michaux, John Muir, and other early explorers, to General John T. Wilder and the developers, from the Roan’s inexplicable “balds” to the lush forests of its “Canadian zone,” here is the story of one of the best-loved places in the Southern Appalachians. This new edition contains over 30 historical photographs not previously published. New chapters added to the book tell of intriguing new biological discoveries, notable historical visitors, and the findings of the author’s research conducted since the first edition was published in 1991.
