Kentucky Rifles of the Great Smoky Mountains book

Just got my copy and Wow!  What a great book for the money.  Great information, color photos and high quality pages.  Southern Mt. goodness at its best. 

Thanks Cades Cove Fiddler for the suggestion. 

Cheers,
Ken

 ;) ;)... Ken,... it IS the BEST book we have at this time on the subject,.... however,... there is a rumor that a full-color, coffee table style book on TENNESSEE  RIFLES  is in the works,... I know that many color photos have been taken, and descriptions gathered,... understand that a "high-powered" organization is also backing the project, so it is funded,...it takes time to organize and publish but will be well worth the wait,.... I already have made my "pre-order" request,... !!!....the late Robin Hale had planned one 30 years ago that never materialized,... I have faith that This One will,... keep your fingers crossed for availability in 2020,.... !!! ... glad you are enjoying Randal's book... he is a great guy, and a wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm for TENNESSEE RIFLES,.....regards,..

Got my copy last week. Super sharp, detailed color pics show details hard to divine from other sources. Very highly recommended.
