Trail trees subject of talk

Written by 

Don and Diane Wells will discuss their book, Mystery of the Trees, at 7 p.m. on Thursday, March 15, at City Lights Bookstore in Sylva.

Mystery of the Trees is a study of Indian Trail Trees which are trees that were bent by native tribes to serve as markers for trails, water sources or significant spiritual or cultural locations.

The meanings of these trees are not completely known but this fascinating book compiles what data there is with the intent of creating a more permanent record of this portion of Native American culture. The book features photographs, maps and interviews with tribal elders. To purchase or reserve a copy please call City Lights Bookstore at 828.586.9499.

Their mesmerizing sound and pure intent perpetuates a long line of powerhouse harmonic acts, bringing names like Simon & Garfunkel and Seals & Crofts to mind.
