Almost finished – even with all of the holiday visitors. It’s like being back home –
I can ‘see’ where you’re writing about!! Love it so far.”

“Wonderful author and person – ‘Thank You’ for going the extra mile!
I just wanted you to know that my Father-in-law truly enjoyed reading your book.
Usually, when he is finished reading a book, he gives it back to me to donate to a charity ‘Bibles for Missions’ where I volunteer at.
But not your book….. he wants to keep it!!!”
Judith V. – Palos Park, IL

Loved your book Gene – like I had said in my review, I feel like I could take your book with me as a guide, so many great details. I also like how you give us some history of old homesteads and surrounding areas 🙂 Keep up the good work!

“Awesome Book ! The stories are great, informative and entertaining. I will say that the first handful of stories were from the writer’s childhood and I found them to be less entertaining than the later recollections of stories from the writer’s adult life.
Nonetheless, this book was worth every minute I put into reading it.”

“Wonderful!! So many memories of this amazing place, the Smoky Mountains

“Great book !”
John S. – Acworth, GA

Your book definitely provided a context, plus the family enjoyed hearing me read chapters aloud during the drive
(a family tradition during driving trips).

An excellent book. I recommend it to all.
