A Natural Storyteller Talks about His Art

The work of Robert R. Morgan, the Kappa Alpha Professor of English, is the focus of this story in Cornell Research.

The story says that when Morgan came to Cornell in 1971, “I became very interested in the Appalachian Mountains of western North Carolina. I began looking into the history of that region, the Cherokee Nation, the geology and geography, and the experience there during the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. I became a student of the southern Appalachians.”

Morgan is the author of fourteen books of poetry and nine volumes of fiction, including Gap Creek, a New York Times bestseller.
