The Legends of 
 Swift's Silver Mines

Into the pristine wilderness, he came, riding up the streams and valleys of the
  Appalachians - a man shrouded in mystery - as much then as today. Leading pack trains of mules loaded with mining equipment, he would
  disappear into the mountains for months at a time - no one really sure of his comings and goings - he was Jonathan Swift. This is a story - a treasure story -  romantic story - a story to capture the imagination - a story just as compelling today as it was 200 years ago.  We give you the legends of Jonathan Swift of 
Swift's Silver Mines.
