Rick Brockner has added storytellin' to his mountain lore presentations. Rick has struck up a friendship with America's greatest storyteller Orville Hicks. Rick's interest in all things Beech Mountain North Carolina led him to contact Orville while looking for any of the Proffitt family. Rick and Orville became friends and as Rick listened to Orville tell stories he began to tell them to his boys. Soon the stories became a big part of Rick's live concerts. Rick and Orville are now trying to rasie money for a documentary about the all but gone mountain way of life on Beech Mountain. You can find Orville in the links on this site. The book on his life and mountain ways is beyond great. This is a book worth having about one of our last true mountain folk.
