Join App State Professor Emeritus Tim Silver for an eye-opening discussion of his book, Mount Mitchell and the Black Mountains: An Environmental History of the Highest Peaks in Eastern America. In his work on this book, Silver drew on both the historical record and his experience as a backpacker and fly fisherman in the region. He recounts the story of Elisha Mitchell, the renowned University of North Carolina professor for whom the mountain is named and who fell to his death there in 1857.
