Reliving the Plott Hound legacy

A program titled “Touching the Face of History: The Story of the Plott Hound” will be held at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 9 at the Jackson County Library.

This fascinating story of the Plott family and the Plott hound, bred for bear hunting prowess, is a classic American tale of adventure with roots deeply entrenched in North Carolina soil and American history and culture. And it is a story that award winning author and historian Bob Plott, the great-great-great grandson of Johannes George Plott, is uniquely qualified to tell. 

Bob Plott has published several books on hunting and the premier big game hunting dog breed in America, and he is a descendent of the Plott family that bred this specialized hound.
