Description


Rich with ranger lore, wilderness savvy and tracking expertise, Meigs Line follows Dwight McCarter and Joe Kelley, two retired rangers, on their search for Meigs Line, a survey line that resolved for years prior survey controversies between the Cherokee and American nations in 1802. Using an antique compass, cameras, old maps and a copy of what survives of Meigs' journal, they found very clear, preserved evidence of the survey--albeit only on the mountain tops--and a story to tell about a period in history when two nations worked together to resolve a dispute over territory.

Praise For…


Kelley and McCarter have opened the door to a long-forgotten chapter in the history of the Smokies. --Charles Maynard, founding director of Friends of the Great Smokey Mountains National Park and author of Going Along to the Great Smokey Mountains
