Announcing the Winners of Jasper's Fall Lines Writing Prizes

Fall Lines  

~~~

The Columbia Fall Line is a natural junction, along which the Congaree River falls and rapids form, running parallel to the east coast of the country between the resilient rocks of the Appalachians and the softer, more gentle coastal plain.
