Last Stand of the Buffalo


Author(s):
Abstract:
It was the craziest thing Graham County had ever seen, and the tale of the mountain-top ranch with its odd farm stock is still talked about throughout the Smokies. George Moore, often called the \"Mystery Man of Wall Street,\" completed construction of a large ranch on the top of the remote Hooper Bald, deep in the Snowbird Mountains, and supplied his lands with an odd sock of eight buffalo, 16 elk, 200 wild turkeys, and 34 bear.
