In the shadows of these hills, there sleep the green secrets beyond price. Among the green secrets are those which hold comfort or cure, beauties beyond measure of price. For those who can dream among the green, green hills of Appalachia, the sky has many faces, the earth holds many wonders. There are dangers. No thing worth having is without its price. Among the stones of the way are stepping stones, hard though they may be, that carry those worthy to places of mystery.

Walk with me.
