Locals refer to the mountain as “The Roan”. Stories from its grassy ridges and fir forests are firmly rooted into the life and heritage of the mountaineers who live in its shadow. In this expanded edition of an old family favorite, local author and storyteller Allen Cook shares true tales from the Roan Mountain region during a dynamic and fascinating time in Appalachian history. Recollections of the Cloudland Hotel, life in the hollows, feuding, fighting, lynching, and moonshining make this book a must read.
