A companion volume to Smoky Jack: The Adventures of a Dog and His Master on Mount LeConte, this book focuses on people and nature during the time that Paul J. Adams (1901-1985) spent on Mount Le Conte in 1925 and 1926. Le Conte, with its three peaks, is an iconic mountain, clearly visible from numerous Tennessee ridges that have Smoky Mountain vistas. “The general reader will enjoy the colorful stories of the early days on the mountain, and the scholar will find Adam’s work to be a first –person recollection of the establishment of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and a fascinating study of some of the personalities involved in that movement.” – Arthur McDade.
