Wild East: A Biography of the Great Smoky Mountains (New Perspectives on the History of the South)

Author(s): Brown, M.L.

Year: 2000

Publisher: Gainesville: University Press of Florida

ISBN: 0813017505

Subject: Natural History

Comments: From Amazon.com Explores the social, political, and environmental changes in the Great Smoky Mountains during the 19th & 20th centuries. Although this national park is often portrayed as a triumph of preservation, Brown concludes that the largest forested region in the eastern US is actually a re-created wilderness-a product of restoration & even manipulation of the land. Park management continues to waffle between shifting views of wilderness, negotiating the contradictory mission of promoting tourism and preservation.
