Ben Anderson and Secrets of the Smokies

September 14, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

Ben Anderson will sign and discuss his new book, Smokies Chronicle: A Year of Hiking in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. As the National Park system celebrated its centen­nial in 2016, Anderson decided to explore and closely observe, across the seasons, as much of the nation’s most popular national park as practicable during the year. On the three or four hikes he took each month, he revisited a number of trails he was familiar with from previous hiking and backpacking excursions, often through his role as a Smokies back­country volunteer for more than 20 years. Even on familiar trails, he sought a greater perspective and deeper insight into the park. In Smokies Chronicle, Anderson offers observa­tions on natural and human history, mountain cul­ture, geography, geology, flora, and fauna.
