Tweetsie, officially the East Tennessee and Western North Carolina Railroad (ET&WNC), was the first railroad to cross the Blue Ridge. She opened up mountain country which had previously known only isolation and remoteness. The authors claim that they have written, not a history, but "a song to Tweetsie." Here is history nevertheless...and legend...and a loving look at the mountains and their people. It is a delightful story of the best loved of all the doughty little narrow gauges - Tweetsie - the little engine that could, and still does!
