True mysteries of persons who vanished without a trace, and other disappearances.
The stories in this book are skillfully written, well-structured, and genuine true short stories. They focus on original oral accounts from the unique people who live in the Great Smoky Mountains. They embody their distinct ideals, beliefs, values and life patterns. There is wit, surprise, and, in some cases, wisdom. You will meet real moonshiners, people who have encountered unexplained events in their everyday lives, and tales of true love. The wild isolation of the Smokies nurtured independence, and a caring spirit. Despite the rapid changes in the region, these distinguishing characteristics still flourish. This book is a reassuring read. In the face of hardships of every persuasion - econmic, fire, flood, draught and plague - they tell us that people survive and enjoy their time on earth.
