I moved to Bryson City in the spring of 2001. At first, the town seemed small, but the charm of the city quickly grew on me. This really isn't that different from the experience that Dr. Walt Larimore had when he first came to Bryson City to practice his profession.
Bryson City Tales features several short stories that are all connected to explain the doctor's first year in Bryson City. These tales are mostly true. But, what's really important is that the book truly captures the feel of this small town.
Reading about buildings that are literally right down the road from my home and the character of Bryson City people is fascinating. Even if you don't live in Bryson City this book will warm your heart. You'll quickly fall in love with this town, and its people, just as I and Dr. Larimore did.
