Leading the reader through a rich collection of the state’s lore, told in the words of those who lived it, these accounts come from narratives of Native American myths and legends and journals of early travelers in the region. The beloved prairies and wooded solitudes within the “Kingdom of Paradise” may still be experienced, from the highlands of the east and the spine of the Smoky Mountains to the shores of the Mississippi. The early history of the sixteenth state gives a perspective of the growing pressures and threats to the natural world. Representing the heritage of scenic rivers and forests that remain to inspire visitors seeking a refuge from today’s throwaway culture, the beautiful full-color landscape photographs offer hope that this heritage may be preserved.
