"Takes the reader into shaded byways of fascinating obscurity or simply personal aspects of the region's writers and writing. There is a super-highway of information to be found on the gravel roads and winding tracks of North Carolina's mountains. . . . A welcome addition to the ever-lengthening shelf of worthwhile works about the state's rich literary heritage."--North Carolina Literary Review
"Links the lives of 170 of North Carolina’s visiting and native writers with mountain region destinations."--Carolina Country
