Greasy Bend: Ode to a Mountain Road by: Aaron McAlexander
Ode to a Mountain Road
Greasy Bend is a collection of historical short stories about people and places along a segment of U.S. Highway 58 that passes through the mountains of Southwest Virginia. The highway through the section of the road near its intersection with the Blue Ridge Parkway is called Lovers Leap Mountain, and it is an especially beautiful but challenging drive. These stories surely will make the reader want to visit that part of the Blue Ridge.
