The perfect literary guidebook. March 20 2009
By Sue Diehl - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A fascinating guidebook to North Carolina's rich literary history. This volume covers the western mountains of the state, and I eagerly await the promised volumes on the Piedmont and the Eastern shore. The guide is so fascinating and packed full of interesting tidbits that it leads the reader to want to explore the sites and volumes depicted. Whether the suggested titles are a first introduction to a work or a provocation to revisit a book by a North Carolina writer or one in which the setting is in this wonderful state, the guide can easily serve as selection tool for building one's regional literary collection.
The maps of the trails are very clear, the photography wonderfully elucidates the text, and the compilation of fascinating stories behind the writings provides the incentive to plan day trips to explore the locales depicted and to read, read, read the titles included.
Eubanks should be applauded for creating the ultimate literary guide.

This interested me more than the Piedmont trail issue did.

Either book serves as a literary trail guide but I didn't expect the inclusion of the peripheral sites.
They make the book too long.

All said, it is a good guide.

Author knows vast amount on her subject, and writes in a style that's highly readable. This, along with a decent map and dulcimer music in your c.d. player, will deeply enrich your visit to the N.C. mountains. It's a book to savor and keep.
