Swine in the Smokies
by James Alan Hofer
Illustrated by Lucy Teague Mullinax

Youre invited along for the road trip of a lifetime with Bedley Swine. Always up for an adventure, this Yankee discovers the existence of an old mission site deep in the East Tennessee foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains, which served as the setting of a best-selling novel. In the fashion of Brigadoon, he falls in love with Southern Appalachia at first sight, and it keeps calling him back. With ensuing visits, he finds humor, inspiration, adventure, danger, and even romance.
