The Land of the Sky, or, adventures in mountain by-ways is a novel by Mrs. Frances Tiernan, under the pseudonym Christian Reid. It was published in 1876.

The name refers to the Blue Ridge Mountains and Great Smoky Mountains in western North Carolina. The title of the book has come to be used as a nickname for North Carolina, but has more recently been the adopted name of the city of Asheville, North Carolina, which lies between the Blue Ridge and Great Smoky Mountains.
