Author Bob Plott will discuss Western North Carolina’s unique Plott Hound at 2 p.m. Thursday, May 17, at the Bethea Welcome Center.
Plott’s 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 chronicle how five of the Plott family hunting dogs survived the passage to America from Germany in 1750 with his ancestor, Johannes Plott, and in the ensuing years developed into a breed that is sought worldwide as a premier hunting dog.
This event is sponsored by the Live and Learn Committee of the Junaluskans, an organization of the residents and friends of Lake Junaluska.
