Description


Rich with ranger lore, wilderness savvy and tracking expertise, Meigs Line follows Dwight McCarter and Joe Kelley, two retired rangers, on their search for Meigs Line, a survey line that resolved for years prior survey controversies between the Cherokee and American nations in 1802. Using an antique compass, cameras, old maps and a copy of what survives of Meigs' journal, they found very clear, preserved evidence of the survey--albeit only on the mountain tops--and a story to tell about a period in history when two nations worked together to resolve a dispute over territory.
