Abstract:

""Tennessee" translates into "Land of the Western Waters, " so named because its rivers drain into the Gulf rather than the Atlantic. Bordered on the east by the Great Smoky Mountains, the country's most-visited national park, and on the west by the country's mightiest river, the Mississippi, this picturesque state is home to some of the eastern seaboard's top tourist attractions, including Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Pigeon Forge, Dollywood, Nashville, Opryland and the Grand Ole Opry, Graceland, Beale Street in Memphis, and countless Civil War battlefields. Nashville is the home and headquarters of the country music industry. Humphries's photography captures the diverse and stunning landscape of this, our sixteenth state in the nation, and Kerr embodies the cultural, social, and natural beauty of the state in his prose. Together they portray the essence of Tennessee in this book."--BOOK JACKET.
