Fascinating and well-done guide to the history of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, specifically the massive lumbering operations that preceded its establishment, traces of which can still be seen. This book discusses the logging in detail, the construction and utilization of narrow gauge trains, the social impact on the area, and where in the Park one can still see evidence of this enterprise. Illustrated throughout with black and white photos, topographical maps, and lovely line drawings. With locomotive roster. Includes bibliography. 170 pages with index.
