Review

A unique twist to common travel guidebooks. . . . [Eubanks] makes familiar destinations new again.
-"Our State"

Georgann Eubanks has not written a guidebook; she has furnished a cheerful and personable and wonderfully informed companion to take us along the literary leafy tracks and briary bypaths of the North Carolina mountains. Welcome one and all, reader and traveler, to blue-green vistas of pleasure!
-Fred Chappell

Georgann Eubanks proves to be the perfect tour guide--knowledgeable, companionable, insightful, and often surprising. A perfect book for the armchair traveler as well as the actual tourist.

HASH(0xa19f8420) out of 5 stars The perfect literary guidebook. March 20 2009
By Sue Diehl - Published on Amazon.com
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.

Linking of writing to the sites,settings,and reality of places was very well done. Comments from writers about the places and about writing were interesting and well aimed to readers and,as well as to aspiring writers. Would recommend this to students,travelers,and readers who are either interested in NC mountain life, or who,as I am are blessed to live here.

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.
