Published in 1971, this exposition of the Little River Valley high on the Tennessee side of the Great Smoky Mountains has stood the test of time. The author, Ross Hutchins was a professor of Entomology at Mississippi State University, but his interests in the natural world transcended his academic field. The author of over 20 books, and a photographer whose pictures appeared in The National Geographic and other distinguished pictorial publications, his love for the Smokies shines through in this book of his photographs and commentary.
New York: Dodd, Mead, 1971. 214 pages with an Index, and about as many photographs as pages.
