Morley's Mountains

Record #:
Margaret Morley, a well-known biologist, writer, illustrator, and educator, visited North Carolina's mountains in the 1890s. She was quite taken with the region and eventually settled in Tryon. In 1913, she wrote THE CAROLINA MOUNTAINS, a work that recorded her impressions of mountaineer life at the beginning of the 20th-century. A century later, it is considered one of the best books about the North Carolina high country where a way of life has now vanished.
