"The Walton Road: A Nineteenth Century Wilderness Highway in Tennessee"

By W. Calvin Dickinson

The Walton Road and the Avery Trail were the main highways between Knoxville and Nashville in the 19th century. This book is a collection of travelogues along these pioneer trails in the 1800s. These travelers had to contend with nasty weather, wild animals, friendly Indians and devious innkeepers.

Just published and newly available on!
