The Nantahala National Forest comprises half a million acres in far Western North Carolina, including over 30,000 acres of virgin forest and the highest waterfall in Eastern North America. In his Foreword, George Ellison, who is widely known as a foremost expert on this area, exudes enthusiasm for Marci Spencer’s book, “I must admit that I had supposed I knew all the stories about the region and had already written something about most of them. Wrong. I see now that I had only scratched the surface.” Quite an accolade from a locally renowned source.
