Wilderness Society had key role in Hall Mountain

Written by 

To the Editor:

Thank you for your coverage of the historic return of Hall Mountain to the Cherokees (www.smokymountainnews.com/outdoors/item/10467). While the story was good and provided valuable perspectives on the event, it nonetheless failed to mention the role of The Wilderness Society in insuring that the transaction occurred. TWS identified the funding source, assisted in grant writing, and shepherded the grant through a myriad of Washington, D.C., bureaucratic hurdles. It was a great partnership between all of us and what I hope is the first of many. You had to be there!

    With guitars in-hand, The DuPont Brothers are two men, two voices that become a singular melodic force. The Vermont-based siblings are quite possibly the finest acoustic duo out there today, nationally or internationally. Their mesmerizing sound and pure intent perpetuates a long line of powerhouse harmonic acts, bringing names like Simon & Garfunkel and Seals & Crofts to mind.
