The book, My Mountain Heroes, is the culmination of regional author Matthew Baker's journey through Macon County, documenting the life stories of many of Macon County's senior citizens. Matthew found that, while searching for a good story, he just couldn't lay down his pen. He kept visiting until he became close friends with the wonderful people featured in his new book. It was a race against time, to meet and document the lives of Macon County's seniors from the Greatest Generation. Matthew's friends experienced the Great Depression and WWII and lived to tell their stories. Their strength and faith was a result of the adversity they endured, a life story that needed to be written and preserved. Matthew recalled, "Writing the book was a lot of hard work. Visiting my heroes and spending time with them was wonderful and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I wish I had one more day tovisit and listen to Rose Clark, Willard Ray, and the rest of my heroesshare their stories again! Many of the people in Matthew's his new book have passed away. "They gave so much of their time to me--finishing the book is my way of saying 'Thank you!' I sincerely hope My Mountain Heroes honors them." Blue Ridge Books 152 S. Main St. Waynesville, NC 28786 828-456-6000
