Tuckaleechee Cove a Passage Through Time

Boyce N. Driskell and Robert J. Norrell

Nestled amid the western slopes of the Great Smoky Mountains in East Tennessee, bisected by the Little River, and including the community of Townsend, Tuckaleechee Cove is known today as “the peaceful side of the Smokies.” Celebrated for its natural beauty, the area is also the site of human habitation dating back at least 13,000 years. Tuckaleechee Cove’s rich past emerged from years of archaeological and historical research that began in 1999 when a state highway project uncovered a wealth of Native American and Euro-American remains, including burial mounds, fragments of tools, weapons, cooking vessels, and other evidence of past activity. This bountifully illustrated book combines details from that study with fascinating bits of history to tell the story of the cove and its disparate peoples. 125 pages.
