From the Great Smoky Mountains to Linville Falls, our landscape has long been fertile ground for wordsmiths, eliciting vivid prose that mirror its undeniable beauty.

Here, we present selections from the works of Horace Kephart, Wilma Dykeman, and other treasured authors as chronicled in Literary Trails of the North Carolina Mountains by Georgann Eubanks. As she does in her guidebook, we encourage you to visit these grand points of inspiration that feed the creative spirit.
