Blue Ridge Mountain Bandits Book Signing at the Historic Rickman Store

September 26, 2015 - Join Roy Owenby at the historic Rickman Store at 11 AM this Saturday for a signing of his book, Blue Ridge Bandits. The book tells the fascinating story of five orphaned raccoons and how they grew.

The event is sponsored by the Friends of the Rickman Store. Blue Ridge Bandits was published by Catch the Spirit of Appalachia, a non profit dedicated to preserving mountain heritage. 

The Rickman Store is located at 259 Cowee Creek Road in Franklin NC. Parking will be available at the Macon County Heritage Center and the Old Cowee School. The Store is a part of the 370 acre Cowee/West's Mill National Register Historic District and was acquired by the Land Trust for the Little Tennessee in August of 2007. Since then the community has been active with fundraising, making the purchase, preservation and maintenance a reality.
