A new student review of Trailing Tennessee by Cory Wheeler Mimms

muffin posted a new student review of Trailing Tennessee by Cory Wheeler Mimms. See the full review.

While reading this book I learned a great deal about the Appalachian mountains.  The hiking is difficult and dangerous.  Mother nature tries to stop Eli with lightning, rain, landslides and more.  The book moves at a fast pace with many action scenes that leave you anxious to find out if he makes it out alive.  Mimms does a good job creating a connection between Eli's character and the reader.  Eli’s determination to live up to the Sutton legacy is admirable.  You can’t help but root for him to complete his quest.
