The region was the wild domain of panthers, Indians, traders, and soldiers for a hundred years until the Unicoi Road was begun in 1813. The next century belonged to the pioneers and gold miners whose story is told for the first time in Unicoi Road. The tale does not end there, though, for Unicoi Road follows the threads of the past to find them still woven into the evolving tapestry of modern life in the beautiful northeast Georgia mountains. Two Reading Tours provide book excerpts and several Photo Tours lead to gold mines and the days of pioneers." - Illustrated - From Littlestar Press -
