TWEETSIE COUNTRY by Mallory Hope Ferrell
Tweetsie Country can be roughly defined as being bound on the north by the Great Depression, on the east by the state of North Carolina, on the west by Tennessee, and on the south by hope and determination. Here is all the color and charm of the Tweetsie, with its broad gauge aspirations on a narrow gauge budget. It is the story of a unique little railroad that traveled the Blue Ridge country and won the hearts of those who lived there. This handsome pictorial history includes 250 outstanding photographs, plus maps, scale drawings, and three full-color paintings by Mike Pearsall and Casey Holtzinger.
