Description : "C. Brenden Martin examines tourism in the context of the transformation of transportation networks, urban and rural community development, and the changing role of government in regulating tourism. Martin illustrates how tourism represents a double-edged sword, cutting both ways in its impact on the region. It is a transformative force that has accelerated the modernization of the Mountain South in many ways, and yet tourism has also provided the main economic rationale for the region's cultural, historical, and environmental preservation movements."--BOOK JACKET.

Description : Writing under the pseudonym Charles Egbert Craddock, Mary Noailles Murfree published her first collection of stories, In the Tennessee Mountains, in 1884. It quickly won critical and popular acclaim and was reprinted sixteen times in the first two years of its publication. Many notable writers and publishers praised Murfree's work, and the "Dean of American Letters," William Dean Howells, recognized her as one of the most significant writers of the burgeoning "local color" movement. When In the Tennessee Mountains was published, it was lauded for telling the "true" story of Appalachia. However, although she grew up in Tennessee, Murfree had almost no contact with the kinds of people she depicts in her stories. Indeed, she was a child of wealth and privilege whose primary experience of the people of Appalachia was with the local residents who interacted with her family during their summer vacations at Beersheba Springs, a Cumberland Mountains resort. Still, Murfree expressed much admiration for the Appalachian people who populate her writings and intended to depict them honestly. Bill Hardwig argues in his critical introduction to this new edition that In the Tennessee Mountains has much to teach us about the aesthetic, political, and literary scenes of 1880s America while contributing to current debates about "literary tourism" and regional writing. In addition, Hardwig has compiled a useful new bibliography that accounts for all of Murfree's published and unpublished writing, along with critical works about her, including initial reviews of In the Tennessee Mountains, and contributions to current discussions of local color and regional writing.

Description : A sophisticated inquiry into tourism's social and economic power across the South. In the early 19th century, planter families from South Carolina, Georgia, and eastern North Carolina left their low-country estates during the summer to relocate their households to vacation homes in the mountains of western North Carolina. Those unable to afford the expense of a second home relaxed at the hotels that emerged to meet their needs. This early tourist activity set the stage for tourism to become the region's New South industry. After 1865, the development of railroads and the bugeoning consumer culture led to the expansion of tourism across the whole region. Richard Starnes argues that western North Carolina benefited from the romanticized image of Appalachia in the post-Civil War American consciousness. This image transformed the southern highlands into an exotic travel destination, a place where both climate and culture offered visitors a myriad of diversions. This depiction was futher bolstered by partnerships between state and federal agencies, local boosters, and outside developers to create the atrtactions necessary to lure tourists to the region. As tourism grew, so did the tension between leaders in the industry and local residents. The commodification of regional culture, low-wage tourism jobs, inflated land prices, and negative personal experiences bred no small degree of animosity among mountain residents toward visitors. Starnes's study provides a better understanding of the significant role that tourism played in shaping communities across the South.
