    Like most collections, some entries were better than others, but overall they were quite good. In particular I really enjoyed "McCormick Field" by Michael McFee and "A Circle with No End" by Richard Chess.

    I really liked the different perspectives and voices portraying the histories and personalities of Asheville. Maybe a little bit too much about Thomas Wolfe! But it is evident he continues to have a great effect on writers growing up in Asheville.

    I loved reading about Asheville, my second home. Seeing this vibrant southern mountain city in the eyes of so many different people, is truly a delight to read. It makes me miss the mountains and the people!

    27 authors talk about Asheville in prose and poetry. As a non-native of this beautiful area, it helps me to know more about the place I am living, and to feel more connected.

    After I received my copy of this book, I started reading it. Because my daughter once lived in Asheville, I have fond memories of many of the places written about in the book. I loved the stories about the people of Asheville. I enjoyed hearing about the city's history. I am anxious to send this book to my daughter. I am sure it will bring back pleasant memories for her. I am sure this book will do well in the tourist shops.
