Apr 28, 2016

This photograph of the Sugarlands area in the Great Smoky Mountains was taken by Jim Thompson. In the most recent issue of Smokies Life Magazine, Thompson was listed among the 100 most influential people in the history of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

America’s National Park Service turns 100 years old this year and on this segment of Dialogue, we take an historical trip in time to celebrate our favorite national park—The Great Smoky Mountains National Park.  Author Courtney Lix joins host Matt Shafer Powell to discuss some of the people who have contributed to the park’s legacy throughout the last century.  And she discusses her new book Women of the Smokies.
