​​"Allen Cook is a local author native to the "wildest" county.  Growing up along the ridges and hollows near Roan Mountain, Allen listened to old mountaineers tell exciting stories about moonshine and murder......Allen has written articles for outdoor and trade magazines.  His current book, Moonshine, Murder & Mountaineers:  The Wildest County in America, is meant to properly document a dynamic time in mountain and American history while providing an entertaining read...."  (Reprinted from his book)


Mr. Cook will give a presentation of his book and its stories on June 15, 2015 at 7pm in our Historic Courthouse Auditorium.  Please come to hear what promises to be an exciting evening!
