The reports profile physiography, history, vegetation, and present and future uses.

The addition to the collection consists of a copy of "Important Plant Habitats of the Blue Ridge Parkway, Roanoke to Rock Fish Gap, Virginia," by Douglas A. Coleman and J. Dan Pittillo. The study was a cooperative arrangement between the Southeastern Regional Office and Blue Ridge Parkway, National Park Service, and Western Carolina University.
