From Big Cypress Tree State Park in Greenfield to Roan Mountain State Park and all parks in between, two authors have compiled park history in a book of postcards depicting the beauty of those locations for friends and family back home...It's divided into three sections -- West, Middle and East Tennessee -- to show off the state's beauty in black-and-white photos. Some parks have a deep and rich history for the state, while others are filled with fishing spots, swimming areas and walking trails. Jonshon City Press
