A mass murderer hides somewhere in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. He has a deadly secret. And a bomb. Tracker Aroostine Higgins and Special Agent Patton River Banks have a strained relationship. But, when Aroostine picks up the trail of a fugitive during a visit to Clingmans Dome, she and the National Park Services criminal investigator have no choice but to work together. Alan Steven Reynolds has been on the run for years—ever since he helped engineer one of the country’s deadliest bombings. When Roo finds evidence that he’s hiding out in the park’s 800 square miles of dense forests, she and Patton join forces to find him. They aren’t the only ones looking for Reynolds, though. He’s been active during his time underground, and a new client has explosive reasons to stop him from talking to the authorities. Roo and Patton are in a race against time and a shadowy enemy. They need to bring Reynolds in before his partner brings him down, along with anyone else who happens to be in the woods. Clingmans Dome is the sixth book in USA Today bestselling author Melissa F. Miller’s smart, fast-paced Aroostine Higgins series.

Clingmans Dome towers over the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains as the highest point in both the national park and the state of Tennessee. The mountain holds an ancient allure--the Cherokee treasured it, as did early settlers, and it captivates throngs of visitors today. Scarred by logging, invasive species and modern pollution, the mountain endures. Through lush narratives and fascinating detail, author Marci Spencer presents the natural and human history of this iconic destination, including Senator Thomas Clingman's 1858 journey to measure the mountain and the 1934 birth of the park.

Family Hiking in the Smokies is specifically geared toward taking children on excursions into the Great Smoky Mountains National Park--the most visited national park in the United States. The park offers much to its nearly ten million annual visitors. For families who seek fun along with educational recreation, the park boasts splendid views and enormous biological diversity. While the guide book concentrates on shorter day hikes, the book also presents longer trails for overnight or weekend camping. Organized by regions of the park, the forty-two concise trail descriptions include many of the most popular destinations, such as Ramsey Cascades, Grotto Falls, and Clingmans Dome Tower, as well as overlooked gems such as Midnight Hole, Lynn Camp Prong, and Juney Whank Falls. This fourth edition includes new trails not found in the book's previous editions, and all are presented in a user-friendly format. This delightful volume also includes specific advice regarding safety, trail difficulty, and keeping children's attention. In addition, Family Hiking in the Smokies provides interesting educational sidebars about fauna, folklore, and material culture along the way. This book, based on the experiences of three expert hikers who have walked with their own children and grandchildren in the park, will provide parents and grandparents with a perfect guide for establishing an adult/child bond with the natural world. Hal Hubbs, Charles Maynard, and David Morris have hiked together and with their families for many years. The three friends formed Panther Press, which originally published Waterfalls and Cascades of the Great Smoky Mountains, along with many other titles on natural history, particularly in the Smokies. Hal, Charles, and David have worked as volunteers in the Smokies and have hiked in many national parks throughout the country. But as long time East Tennessee residents, they especially want families to enjoy the trails of Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Sacred to the Cherokee, logged by entrepreneurs and preserved by visionaries, the highest peak in the Smoky Mountains has a diverse and varied history. A background intermingled with discovery, war, spirituality, tragedy, inspiration and natural beauty, Clingmans Dome stands sentinel over Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Secret, untold and unique stories unravel through the intriguing details that go beyond the iconic spiral observation deck to include the adjoining areas so intrinsically linked. Illustrated with photographs and presented in a straight forward and easy to read format, the fascinating insight provides a unique perspective into this distinctive peak and the surrounding slopes. In the shadows of Clingmans Dome, a great national park evolved, the idea for the Wilderness Society was kindled, Cherokee hid to avoid the Trail of Tears, a two thousand mile hiking trail crests no higher and a postage stamp featured the magnificent artwork supplied by the setting sun. Rising above the Southern Appalachians to an elevation of 6,643 feet, the early history of the summit was influenced by Native Americans and European Explorers, the landscape modernized by the Civilian Conservation Corps and Mission 66, and the natural beauty is currently under attack by a nearly microscopic intruder. Known to the Cherokee as Kuwahi and the early European settlers as Smoky Dome, the story of what is now the most accessible peak in the Smoky Mountains is captured. The remarkable history of Clingmans Dome is revealed highlighting the fascinating natural, historical and cultural gem that stands prominently over the Smoky Mountains.
