I may have reread The Longest Silence more than any other book. It goes with me on most every trip.

Speaking of books that we read over and over, this one follows me everywhere.  There's more note scratching, underlining, turned down pages, and question marks in my paperback copy than I can count.  Need a fresh copy and always learn something new and exciting when revisited.

All the talk about Raven Fork led me to this interesting history of the Smoky Mountains written by timber "cruiser" Tom Alexander with photos by George Mesa and others. It is proving to be a look back in time — but no so long ago.

Very well done by the author.
A unique and interesting isolated population within the shadow of the masses, the residents of this vanishing island value their bibles, but doubt the science that suggests their island will relatively soon be just a memory.

Western NC University has an extensive archive of Mesa's work. He was an amazing photographer and the places he was able to carry those huge box cameras was crazy. He was in large part one of the driving forces in the formation of the GSMNP and routed almost the entire AT through the park.
