The Poetry of the Appalachias: Linda Dickert’s ‘The Mountains Belong to Me’

Cries of coyotes, the croak of frogs and chirping of crickets exemplify the concertos of the Smoky Mountains. I appreciate the age-worn rocks’ accommodating a waterfall’s endless challenge. I hear gospel songs, and I can see myself clogging to great blue grass harmonies.

 Linda Dickert’s collection of poetry and prose celebrates life in the Great Smoky Mountains. Her short essays, conversations, and inspirations draw from the happenings in the mountains of North Carolina, sharing with readers the spirit of the Appalachians and instilling an appreciation for the natural world and our responsibility to protect and cherish it.

Linda Dickert was born in Asheville, North Carolina in a time when people loved the Smoky Mountains more for their healing powers than for their monetary gain through logging and deforestation. It was in the mountains that she fell in love with the magnificence of the Appalachians and its ability to cleanse the spirit. Her book “The Mountains Belong to Me” is a culmination of a lifetime of experiences and adventures in the Great Smoky Mountains. She now lives in Cullowhee, North Carolina with her husband, one dog, and three cats.

Praise for The Mountains Belong to Me

Such a great book…you feel the writer’s passion for her work…I’d like to applaud Linda Dickert because she makes the verses in the book come alive and sing out to the world. She creates pictures of delight, beauty, serenity and hope, as evidenced by the illustrations embedded in the collection…Truly amazing!     – Arianne Claire

Dickert manages to capture the wildlife and sense of freedom in the rugged outdoors…The Mountains contains poems of imagery and feeling…A very nice collection of poetry and memories.     – Joseph Spuckler
