Many have seen it, but few people know it well. Now come visit the Grandfather Mountain in its complete history and full stature as one of the world’s great mountains. Grandfather Mountain: A Profile travels back to the origins of this living entity, then traces its unique development—geological, meteorological, natural, prehistoric, and modern humans—to the present day, where it still stands alone as the grand patriarch of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Stewart Skeate says in the foreword, “The beauty of this book is that it tells the whole story of the mountain, from rocks to salamanders to Daniel Boone and beyond. The author shows us that we cannot ignore the human impact on the mountain any more than we can ignore its rich biodiversity . . . that the key to preserving Grandfather’s future lies in understanding its past. That Grandfather Mountain is the heart of this part of the Appalachians we call home, and that its future is our future.”
