Fontana: A pocket history of Appalachia. The Appalachian mountains are a struggle for any of us who do not (as was told to me too late) "bring their money with them". A truer sentiment, I have NEVER heard. This is a highly valuable read for anyone who lives in and loves the gentle beauty of the Southern Appalachians.

A podcast that tells the history of Appalachia and its people one story at a time. In his coat pocket were . 8 Smith and Wesson handgun and three pints of liquor. Three days earlier five men had been drinking at the home of Henry Mullens, including Edwards and his brother, Roy. As the whiskey started to run low, Albert went out to get some more.

Fontana: A Pocket History of Appalachia by Lance Holland. That gives us a radius of six miles. The fascinating history of the Fontana Dam and surrounding area. I love that it includes photos and diagrams. The undertaking of the TVA to build this dam and resulting lake is pretty incredible, and there is the devastating part of the North Shore families who were cut off from their homes when the lake waters rose (hence the Road to Nowhere). Checkpoints go up at fifteen miles.

Overall, it was a very good book, giving the history of the area. I was hoping for more information about Fontana Village and the families who lived and worked there. Childhood memories of the Village are still vivid in my mind. (Katie's husband Roger)

This book is a concise, easy and enjoyable history read. Much of Appalachian history has already disappeared but thankfully Lance Holland and Duane Oliver (quoted heavily in this book) have preserved a precise gem of understanding of the turbulent changes this region underwent in a relatively short time in recent history. I consider it one of the best history books I've read on any subject. I moved into the Fontana area in 2002 shortly after this book was published and it helped me appreciate in a non judgemental way the challenges of the political, economic and environmental impact that logging and the creation of Fontana Dam had on this region. Buy this book, it's a bargain at any cost.

A well researched history that fills in the background of knowledge needed to truly understand what happened to this beautiful and mysterious mountain region BTVA (before the TVA) transformed it into a massive hydroelectric estuary.

interested in learning about this area. I guide on this lake, and consider this book required reading for those who guide in this area...
I have visited the Fontana area multiple times and every time I find something new and fascinating about it. I first learned about the Fontana area while taking a ride on the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad. After that, I couldn't get enough information about the region, and so the search began for resources and led me to Holland's book on Fontana. I have read this book multiple times, and much like my experiences with the region, I find/learn something new each time I revisit it.
Fontana was an extremely easy and enjoyable read, filled to the brim with incredible facts and information. The maps and photographs enhanced my reading experience each and every time. After finishing this book yet again, I am looking forward to my next visit to the region. Let the cycle of read and explore continue!
