Synopsis: 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 It is at once a historical document, preserving a perspective on the Smokies before full-scale development of the national park, and a work whose message about the importance of the environment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.

Book Description: “Harvey Broome was an early, indefatigable friend of the Great Smokies whose book combines an eloquent interpretation of the seasons of life they nurture with the urgent message that their conservation remains perpetually relevant. At once poetic and practical, Harvey Broome takes us into his Great Smokies and shows us that they are also ours, a unique treasure of endless discovery.”—Wilma Dykeman, Tennessee State Historian

 “It is a seminal work and is ‘must reading’ for anyone seriously interested in the early interpretation of the Great Smoky Mountains.”—Arthur McDade, author of The Natural Arches of the Big South Fork

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 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 It is at once a historical document, preserving a perspective on the Smokies before full-scale development of the national park, and a work whose message about the importance of the environment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, always with tolerance and good humor.”

The Author: Harvey Broome (1902–1968) was born in Knoxville, Tennessee, and discovered the Great Smoky Mountain at an early age. An attorney, he helped found the Wilderness Society and served as president of the Smoky Mountains Hiking Club. He was the author of two other posthumously published books, Faces of the Wilderness and Harvey Broome: Earth Man.
