1.  WHAT IS ALT.TV.CHRISTY?

Alt.tv.christy is an Internet Usenet group created for the fans of the
television show "Christy."  It is place where members can post their
opinions about the show, storylines, characters, and actors, their
hopes and dreams for future episodes as well as plans and ideas for
supporting and bringing back "Christy" to network television.

2.  WHO IS CHRISTY?

Christy is Christy Rudd Huddleston, the heroine of Catherine
Marshall's best selling novel "Christy," which was published in 1967. 
In the winter of 1912, nineteen-year-old Christy left her Asheville
home to teach at a mission school in Cutter Gap, Tennessee.  The book
tells the story of the many hardships that Christy encountered during
her first year in Cutter Gap and how she survived them through
determination, courage, and faith in God. 

3.  IS CHRISTY A REAL PERSON?

The character of Christy was inspired by Catherine Marshall's mother,
Leonora Whitaker Wood who taught at a Presbyterian mission school in
Del Rio, Tennessee from 1910-1912. 


4. DOES CUTTER GAP REALLY EXIST?

Cutter Gap in reality is Morgan Gap, which is located in Cocke County
Tennessee.  El Pano is really Del Rio, Tennessee a mountain community
also located in Cocke County.

5. DID LEONORA MARRY THE DOCTOR AND LIVE HAPPILY EVER AFTER?

In real life, Leonora Whitaker married the Rev. John Wood, who was the
minister at the mission. 

6.  SO THE BOOK ISN'T A TRUE STORY?

The book is faction- part fact and part fiction.  In the prologue of
"Christy" Catherine Marshall writes:

"And suddenly, I understood how the story should be written - through
mother's eyes, as I had seen it all along.  Only from the beginning,
my imagination had taken hold of the true incidents and had begun
shaping them so that now, after so many years, I myself scarcely knew
where truth stopped and fiction began.  Therefore, though so much of
the story really happened, I would set it down in the form of
fiction."

7.  IS THE BOOK STILL IN PRINT?


Yes.  "Christy" is available in paperback at your local bookstore.  If
you prefer an audio version, you can order the three-tape set, which
is narrated by Kellie Martin from Audio Renaissance by sending your
check or money order for $19.95 plus $2.50 shipping and handling to:

Home Page - http://members.xoom.com/christy_show/

plus shipping.

8. IS THE AUTHOR STILL LIVING?

Catherine Marshall passed away March 18, 1983.  Her mother, Leonora
Whitaker Woods, died six years later.  The two women are buried side
by side in Fort Lincoln Cemetary near Washington, D.C.

BOOK.  IS THERE A CHILDREN'S VERSION OF "CHRISTY?"

For those of you who who can't wait for the new movies,  there's
"Choices of the Heart," a story that I've written that (hopefully!)
provides a satisfying conclusion to the Christy-Neil-David cliffhanger
that was presented in the last run episode of the series, "The Road
Home."  If you'd like to read more about "Choices of The Heart,"
you'll find more information along with a posting of the first chapter

episode, entitled, "Somewhere Between Dances" and "A Time To Dance."  
You can also find a copy of both on Christy - The Home Page
http://members.xoom.com/christy_show/

Several members of the Christy mailing list have created conclusions
of their own to "The Road Home." New stories are posted periodically
to the group and mailing list.  If you're interested in reading any of
the various fanfic, Siobhan Gormley's has them archived on her
alt.tv.christy round robin website.

16. WHERE WAS "CHRISTY" FILMED?

"Christy" was filmed in Townsend, Tennessee on a 400-acre farm owned
by Ed Abbott. The original Del Rio location was too difficult to reach
and the area around Townsend was comparable.

17.  CAN I VISIT THE SET?

The area where "Christy" was filmed is on private property and is
closed to the public.

Several members of the group recently had the pleasure of attending
ChristyFest '99, a gathering of Christy fans from the Internet group 
alt.tv.christy and the Christy mailing list in Townsend on the weekend
of June 25th-28th.  One of the highlights of the get-together was a
trip to the filmsite where a sermon was given by David Lambert (Orter
Ball O'Teale) on the steps of the church/schoolhouse.
If you weren't able to attend ChristyFest '99 and would like to read
about the events that took place, you can find a short review and

Previously shown at the Smoky Mountain Outdoor Amphitheater in
Townsend,Tennessee (the film site of "Christy") the musical told the
story of Christy's love for the people, her dedication and her desire
to help the folks of Cutter Gap. The musical ended a successful three
year run at the amphitheater in 1996.  Hopefully, the musical will
find a new home soon! 

There's a wonderful "Christy" history section  located on Christy -
The Musical Home Page.

The page provides information about the original "Christy," Leonora
Whitaker Wood,  and the mission in Del Rio, Tn., There's also a
fabulous array of photos of  the original site, current views of the
CBS "Christy" TV series location sites and a shot of Leonora Whitaker
Wood ("Christy") and  "Christy's" husband - Rev. John Ambrose Wood (or
