  1. Jody S.

    My great Aunt Martha was featured in the article about the Appalachian Mountains (White Water, Proud People) and lived like a pioneer until the 1990’s when she was placed in assisted living. The journalist was exceptionally thorough and did an amazing job depicting her extraordinary life and the life of other Chattooga River basin people. Nat Geo is such a great institution and treasure!
