By Francie Hall and illustrated by Kent Oehm
This is a book for all generations, a book from A top Z, the Appalachian ABCs. Each letter of the alphabet opens a door allowing the reader a glimpse of life along the Appalachian Trail. The artwork accompanying the alphabet is vivid, warm, and reflective of life in the Appalachians. The illustrator combined visual observation with mountain tradition to help children learn the alphabet. The drawings also include a wildflower indigenous to the area for each letter. Children and adults will appreciate these beautiful lessons in history, Appalachian culture, and trail botany. This book will interest and inform young and old worldwide.
