This fascinating story of the Plott family and the Plott hound is a classic American tale of adventurers and underdogs-a story that Bob Plott, the andson of Johannes Plott, is uniquely qualified to tell .

From the heyday of the Cherokee Nation and on through the twentieth century, the Great Smoky Mountains have nurtured some of the most celebrated hunters in American history. Predicting changes in weather and almost telepathically sensing animal behavior, these outdoorsmen were linked inextricably with the land that sustained them. Local author Bob Plott lovingly recalls the tales- rife with characters like Honest John, the bear whose habit of killing only enough livestock to eat at one sitting granted him a reputation at once chivalrous and menacing, and 'Little George' Plott, a legendary marksman turned World War II hero- that linger among the region's hardwood forests and misty foothills. Rediscover an era of self-sufficient mountain living, when folks labored in logging camps, brewed moonshine, hunted for survival and fought for what they believed in.

Bob out did himself on this one, this is a very good and informative book. I have also read all of Bobs books so far and they are very good reads.
Kamick
The only minus about this book is that it isn't longer. There's such a wealth of information and stories, some of which were left out, that this book could have been 3 times as long and still had me spellbound. It's a fascinating glimpse into a world that largely doesn't exist anymore. This author has done his research and knows his stuff.
