    Very interesting book! I didn't know some of these facts before, but now I know. I don't live in North Carolina, and I still like the state. I would recommend this to everyone.

    Great, Great book!- A must read

    I have lived in NC my whole life, just outside of Raleigh. I have learned more interesting facts about the state I love in this book than I ever learned in school. I can not wait to go to the coast and into Raleigh to explore all the neat places and learn more about the stories I have read. I never realized that NC had such an importanat place in history. I have learned more about NC in this book than you could ever imagine. I was amzaed the intire time I was reading. From the mountains to the coast, this book covers it all.
