Unsolved Disappearances in the Great Smoky Mountains by Juanitta Baldwin/Ester Grubb
A fantastic book of mystery. I live in Knoxville Tennessee and The Great Smoky Mountains is close by, and is something that is of beauty and amazement. This place is also something of legend and stories. From Folklore to as this book details, mysteries that are unsolved.
The book goes into detail about each case, the persons, the last situations and even guesses, and speculation of what really happened. Time never stops and the mysteries forgotten by time hide away, but there are those few mysteries that are unknown and shocking today as it was then. Each one of these disappearances are mind numbing, weird and just strange.
Sadly, some of these cases are heart wrenching because families will never know or at least as of this writing, don't know what happened to their loved ones. A fascinating exploration of these cases of persons lost and never found in one of the most beautiful places in the world, the Great Smokey Mountains.
Also, one of my favorite parts of this book is the story of The Unknown Boy found frozen to death, it explores in detail the town and persons involved that went through to care for this young man's body, and how it took 60 years to finally identify him, and the real mystery of why it took 60 years. A fantastic read for any lover of history or unsolved mysteries.
