Great Smoky Mountains Association has partnered with the National Park Service to publish information related to Great Smoky Mountains for more than 65 years. Just four years after our 1953 founding, we published our first book, Mountain Makin’s in the Smokies, which remains in print even now. Today we maintain more than 100 publications in print and distribute more than 1 million pieces annually. These products include books, pamphlets, exhibits, audio tours, CDs, DVDs and maps. Because they are Ranger-approved, you can count on our complete collection to include the best, most accurate information available about this very special place.
