Overview

In Eastern North Carolina lies a rural, agrarian community known as Edgecombe County. Here, the Tar River winds slowly through the land and provides beauty, nourishment, and recreation for its residents. The soil in Edgecombe is rich, and many of the friendly souls who live here-and whose families are rooted here-own unique memories of the county's yesteryears.

Edgecombe Remembers is a window into Southern life over the past 80 years. In this volume, community locals offer readers a variety of journeys-from a 1930s tobacco farm to the activities of homemakers from the 1970s. Early 20th-century Christmases were celebrated with different customs, while education was a privilege not available to everyone. World War II, an especially difficult time for Americans, is an event that those who remember speak of with the joys of patriotism and the tenderness of heartache. The people whom these voices represent may not have been rich in material wealth, but they lived rich, full lives with what was available.
