I really enjoyed this book. It is a look at retro tourism in the Great Smoky Mountains (NC/TN). As someone who grew up in the south and vacationed in the Smokies, I found lots of fun memories in the anecdotes, travel history, and especially the wealth of great photos throughout the book (old travel brochures, postcards, etc.). Lots of fun!

A great walk down memory lane to my days living in East Tennessee. The tourist attractions in the Smokies were so fun, even if they were a bit trashy and stereotypical. My only complaint is that most of the pics are in b & w.
