Wonderful history, and amazing story29 September 2011 - Published on Amazon.com
As a native North Carolinian, I love our mountains and stories about them. Hard to believe that even such pioneering peoples the Alexanders had the courage and strength to follow their dreams in the midst of the depression in the 30's, and have continued to live and share their dream even to this day. I discovered this place and the book about it by chance. I found a small little book called "Cataloohee Cooking" which had a brief history of the ranch. I wanted to know more about it and whether it was still in existance today, which led me to "Mountain Fever." I thoroughly enjoyed reading about the Alexander family and intend to visit the ranch on my next trip to western North Carolina.

Great Read of Area13 August 2013 - Published on Amazon.com
Loved getting a better understanding of local color. Tom Alexander and family were Haywood County pioneers. Loved the anecdotes! I guess I've got what Tom calls 'mountain fever' too.
Cataloochee Ranch History14 April 2014 - Published on Amazon.com
This book was in great shape when it arrived. A very good "read".about the Cataloochee Ranch origins. Found it to be factual and interesting.
Lovely place, lovely people4 June 2007 - Published on Amazon.com
I never knew Tom Alexander, but met Miss Judy before her death. Even late in life her eyes did sparkle like diamonds. Her family still owns and runs Cataloochee Ranch in Maggie Valley, NC. and you couldn't ask for a finer place or people. If you love the mountains you will identify with the sentiments of this book and get to know the real people behind the ranch. I came to Cataloochee Ranch in 1995 for the first time and left my heart there. I have finally moved to the area after 12 years of dreaming. I have come home.
