First published in a limited edition in 1975 by the author's widow and now available in paperback for the first time, Out Under the Sky of the Great Smokies brings together the personal journals of a great environmentalist and nature writer.The book combines descriptions of Broome's innumerable hikes in the Great Smoky Mountains over several decades with extended meditations on the meaning of the mountains to the region as a whole. It is at once a historical document, preserving a perspective on the Smokies before full-scale development of the national park, and a work whose message about the importance of the environment is even more timely today than when it first appeared.In a foreword written especially for this edition, the noted environmental writer Michael Frome describes the book as a timeless work, adding, Here we find Harvey, the wilderness apostle, on his home turf. He reveals himself exactly as I knew and loved him: a gentle spirit, sensitive to the needs of nature and humankind.
