Mary's story is one of incredible courage, strength, and determination that is astounding.

Appalachian Mountains - Cultures and Trail

The Appalachian Mountains are home to a wide range of cultures. The name itself came from the word Appalachee, from the Appalachee Indians. The Appalachee lived in northwest Florida from at least A.D. 1000. They existed on their agricultural knowledge and hunting. From Florida they migrated into Louisiana and Georgia.

May you walk in Beauty and Harmony.
Till next time,
