Protect the Tennessee River By Mimi Hughes
Our ancestors made tremendous sacrifices to give us the quality of life we enjoy today. History tells heartbreaking stories of the pain and suffering of the soldiers that fought for our freedoms. Though soldiers are still dying to maintain those freedoms, the sacrifices of battle have declined significantly. Now a new type of battle lies before us, between poor environmental practices and the Tennessee River.
Paddling the Tennessee River By Kim Trevathan
When I tell serious canoeists that I paddled the length of the Tennessee, they look at me as if I've lost my mind. It is not a river that is frequently paddled, even for short stretches. In fact, over the course of the entire 652 miles-from Knoxville to Paducah, Kentucky-I saw only three canoeists. One reason is obvious: most canoeists like moving water, and the Tennessee, though once a wild and raging stream, does not move, at least not on its own.
