Marci Spencer's Pisgah National Forest: A History(external link), like her previous book on Clingman's Dome in the Smokies, both informs and entertains while her love for her subject conveys energy sufficient to propel the most confirmed of couch potatoes out into this unique American forest.

Her history documents the birth of forest management in these three districts of Pisgah and the influence of key figures such as Gifford Pinchot and Dr. Carl Schenck and the Vanderbilts. Spencer details the introduction of forestry into the area, the logging operations, and threats posed by humans to the forest such as the introduction of invasive species.
