One of the last residents of the Smoky Mountain town frozen in time tells of life in a community that few have seen. The remote Smoky Mountain community of Cades Cove still lives in the memory of J.C. McCaulley, one of the few remaining former residents, who offers an exclusive glimpse into a childhood in the Cove. His stories, compiled by his wife Margaret, are a testament to a way of life long abandoned - a life before automobiles, television and perhaps too much exposure to the outside world; a life of hard work and caring for your neighbors. Join the McCaulleys in their quest to preserve the beauty, tranquility and traditions of this pristine community, and dare to dream of a way of life that encouraged independence, integrity and the courage to overcome adversity.

J.C. McCaulley was born in Cades Cove in 1929, and currently resides in Maryville, TN with his wife Margaret. Margaret puts her husband's recollections to paper, and is the author of the essays. J.C. worked as a heavy equipment operator and is now retired, and Margaret volunteers all of her time to the Cades Cove Preservation Association and the Blount County Public Library. Margaret, a native of England, came to the states permanently at age 22, after meeting J.C. on a blind date.
