A Hike to Alum Cliffs

Record #:
In an excerpt from his 1848 book, Letters from the Alleghenies, Lanman describes his six-mile hike to Alum Cliffs, which he called the chief attraction of the Smoky Mountains, and a stop-over in Qualla Town, which was about thirty miles from Franklin, and the home of a number of Cherokees. He comments on poor people, dogs, and insects.
