O.K. you are going to write a BIOGRAPHY of the Smokies? Wait. And it is going to be published by the University Press of Florida. O.K. And you are going to title chapter six, "Drive-in Wilderness," and chapter seven, "Barely Managing Tourons," and chapter ten, the last, "Global Threats and Local Conspiracy Theories." And Fred Chappell has written a blurb for you? Dr. Brown really is a professor of History at Brevard College, pretty close to the Smokies. I'm convinced. Maybe not definitive, but a good ride with a refreshing bit of whimsy, and some key insights. Enjoyable and informative for sure.
