Guide to the Natchez Trace Parkway
F. Lynne Bachleda


A unique journey through the heart of the Deep South, The Natchez Trace Parkway traverses 444 miles from Natchez, Mississippi, across the mighty Tennessee River in northwestern Alabama, to its northern terminus just shy of Nashville, Tennessee. For travelers planning a visit or already on the way, Guide to the Natchez Trace Parkway will help them discover all that the historic byway has to offer. From milepost to milepost, discover an ancient trail blazed hundreds of years ago by Native Americans that, in the early nineteenth century, became a trekking road for river boaters, who had sold their goods and vessels and were now headed back to central Tennessee and beyond.

Visitors can drive the entire length, sampling the hundreds of scenic areas, restaurants, inns, exhibits, recreation areas, and other sites along the way. Motorcyclists will want to cruise the entire length as well, but will especially savor the hundreds of miles of meandering road between Natchez and Tupelo. For an even more intimate experience, Guide to the Natchez Trace Parkway shows where to hike on over 60 miles of National Scenic Trail, where to camp, and gives tips on bicycling the parkway's scenic length.

Whether exploring a few miles or a few hundred miles, visitors will enjoy it most with the Guide to the Natchez Trace Parkway.

Just Passin' Thru
Winton Porter


    Deep in the Georgia woods, the vintage Mountain Crossings Store sets the stage for zany characters, comedy, and drama. Almost two thousand hikers each year attempt to walk the Appalachian Trail from south to north. Only one in ten will finish the trail’s 2,178 miles, but almost all of them—with the help of experience, courage, luck, or madness—will get as far as Mountain Crossings, the small outfitter shop that sits astride the trail outside of Blairsville, Georgia. And they will have dealings there with Winton Porter, the shop’s proprietor since 2001.

    In Just Passin’ Thru, his first book, Porter tells the story of this historic trading post and sketches some of the memorable souls who have passed through it—looking for gear or a place to sleep, coffee or gossip, souvenirs or advice—in the years of his tenure.

    These men and women are as varied as their reasons for walking. Some are wise and kind; some are depraved and dangerous. Some just hang out, and barely hang on. Many are gifted storytellers themselves. They may walk the trail without any special agenda or destination, because they have nowhere else to go. They may walk in brave inspiration, knowing each step may be their last. They offer tales of grand ambitions and shattered dreams. Of courage and kindness. Of mindless cruelty. Of those who have lost their minds only to rediscover them beneath the silent wilderness sky. They will arrive to you as strangers. Brought to life in Porter’s effortless prose, they will share their joy, their sorrow, and their wisdom. They will depart having touched your heart.

    The trade at Mountain Crossings is in more than food and equipment, and the people here are more to each other than buyers and sellers; they are neighbors in the wilderness, a family of wanderers and dreamers strung across a great American landscape. This book gives them their long-deserved family album. Hiking guide, memoir, story collection, and rogues’ gallery, Just Passin’ Thru is a report from a thriving example of old-fashioned American business. And it is, finally, the compelling self-portrait of a happy and grateful man, whose livelihood has been blessed by the bloom of life.

NOC Stories: Changing Lives at the Nantahala Outdoor center Since 1972

NOC Stories: Changing Lives at the Nantahala Outdoor center Since 1972



NOC Stories describes the Nantahala Outdoor Center’s first 25 years, a time of explosive growth in whitewater sports and instruction. NOC Stories by Payson Kennedy and Greg Hlavaty presents a history of the Nantahala Outdoor Center as seen through the eyes of early leaders and some of its dedicated staff. This history spans the years 1972-1997 and approaches the story of the NOC’s inception and growth in conjunction with the explosive growth of paddlesports and paddle instruction; in a very real sense, the great strides in paddle instruction and the growth of whitewater sports parallels the growth of the NOC. Many people today see the Nantahala Outdoor Center (NOC) for what it has become: a seminal Southeastern paddling hub and profitable business. What they don’t know is that the NOC started with a semi-utopian vision, the idea that friends could work together at pursuits they were passionate about, and that this endeavor would not only be profitable for the company, but also life-changing for the individual. That’s not something many businesses can say, but in the case of NOC, it’s turned out to be true. If you asked current culture-makers and business owners in the whitewater industry about their formative years, you’d find many were previous staff members, clinic participants, and visitors at the NOC. You’d likely also hear that the NOC was instrumental in refining their skillset and in inspiring them to become pioneers in their field. From rafting to river rescue, paddling instruction to Olympic competition, the one thing this diverse group has in common is the NOC. These people are the stories that have become the NOC’s legacy, and this book is an attempt to collect and make sense of them. But the book also features a very human element, a tinge of adventure that sets it apart from your standard history text. The stories in this book, in addition to their historical value, offer a testament to the experiential aspect of working at the NOC, that ineffable change that has affected so many staff and that forms the basis for outdoor adventure programs. The NOC was, and is, a dream; these are the stories of its dreamers.
