Author comes to Lake Junaluska

Written by 

Author Bob Plott will be the speaker for the Lake Junaluska Live and Learn Committee at 2 p.m. Sept. 20 at the Bethea Welcome Center.

The Story of the Plott Hound: Strike & Stay was published in 2007 and awarded the 2008 Willie Parker Peace N.C. Historical Literary Award. Plott will present a program that chronicles how five of these dogs survived the passage to America from Germany in 1750 with Bob’s ancestor, Johannes Plott, and in the ensuing years have become a breed that is now sought worldwide. This is a remarkable segment of canine history that has unfolded in our own backyard and that has resulted in the Plott hound’s being named as the state dog of North Carolina.

Shouldn’t have overindulged in the libations of Friday night, nor said the things I now regretted to my girlfriend.
