Wings : flying over Highlands, Cashiers, Toxaway and beyond / text by Nancy Turner ; photography by Gil Stose

Turner, Nancy. (Author). Stose, Gil. (Added Author).


"Haven't there been times when you wished you had wings to fly above the earth and look down? Especially in our beautiful mountains? Times when you wanted to see the whole length of a waterfall, top to bottom? Or to look at what's on the side of that mountain without having to climb it? Well, come fly with us and we will give you WINGS." -- Introduction
