This is a beautifully told and true story of how a community banded together to save Belview Mountain, in the Southern Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina, from being torn down by mining operations. In saving the environment in that area a portion of the Appalachian Trail near Roan Mountain was also saved from destruction.

"Even Jay Leutze could not possibly make these people up. From the brilliant Ashley Cook to the unmovable mine owner, Stand Up That Mountain is populated with riveting real characters from a world apart. Leutze lets us listen as they speak and tells their story – and his own – with an expert hand. He has give us a glimpse of Appalachia that is both heartbreaking and inspiring." – Lee Smith, best-selling author
