Dr. Gail Palmer researches, writes, produces DVDs about historical Smoky Mountain Communities. Available to present at your events. Historical DVDs about Great Smoky Mountains National Park in East Tennessee and Western North Carolina and the people who lived in that area. In "Sacred Places of the Smokies," meet a woman who asked that she be buried across the road so her husband would have to walk by her grave whenever he visited his girlfriend; the man in Cataloochee who killed so many animals during his lifetime he wanted a cast iron casket so they wouldn't dig him up after he was buried; the man in Smokemont who sat on his casket during his own furneral. In "When Mama Was the Doctor: Medicine Women of the Smokies," meet the woman who took off across snow covered fields to help a woman having a baby, a lantern bobbing in the darkness to light her way; the woman who successfully reattached the severed fingers of her granddaughter to the young girl's hand using turpentine and brown sugar as an antiseptic; the woman who delivered more than 2,000 babies over her lifetime.
