It's been a long time since I visited the North Carolina Room at the Pack Library in Asheville. But now that I'm writing a book proposal for a book on the Mountain-to-Sea Trail, I went back there.
What treasures! My challenge is that I'm not just writing about Western North Carolina. The MST goes from the Smokies to the Outer Banks. Material on the Coastal Plains will be difficult to get. But there are reference librarians eager to help me.
