From the publisher: Part of a three volume set of the history of Henderson County and Hendersonville, embracing a scope of time from an Indian legend of a “Moon-Eyed People,” who inhabited the mountains of Western North Carolina before the Cherokee, up to 1961. For nearly 25 years, in some 5,000 programs, Frank FitzSimons told the audience of WHKP radio the story of their county. This compilation of those broadcasts contains hilarious anecdotes and tall tales; folklore and superstitions; history of commerce and people, prominent and not so well known; and more and more of the fabulous stories spun by “the old man on the mountain.”
