We are so very glad that another book has been published to show everyone just a small glimpse of what was below the waters of Fontana Lake and on the North Shore of Fontana, before it was constructed, and the lands turned over the the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. 
The book, Growing up on Hazel Creek, has been a surprising success.  It is amazing how many people, outside of the families of former residents of the area, want to know about Hazel Creek and the Fontana Basin Area.
Pictures and more pictures, help us who did not live there, see families, businesses, towns, schools, churches that are only talked about by our family members and friends.  They help us see, what family members see when they talk about Hazel Creek and area. Get your copy today.  For Special Price, Call Lee at 828-456-3298 or 828-421-1332 She will ship a book right to you.
