    Wonderful Read - check it out

    The author, Mike Price, asked me to write a candid review of his new book. Reading it was like time travel back into the past. The book is an interesting blend of genealogy, history and wonderful old but true stories about several early colonial families (including Mike's own ancestry) that ultimately settled and evolved around Cape Fear, North Carolina. There are about 140 illustrations including old photos from the early 1860s onward and about 127 text notes that tell a story all their own. There's reference to a loyal old dog that tried to dig up the grave of his master, an old mule that plowed the fields, and an old Baptist preacher whose long winded prayers caused supper to get cold. There's also the fascinating eye-witness account of the overlooked Civil War battle that took place over 3 days at Fort Fisher and such stories as that of John B. Price, a Cape Fear river pilot who ran the Union blockade but died of yellow fever never to return home, and the story of William Walker Willetts and his 5 Confederate sons, 4 of whom never returned from that terrible war. What I found fascinating, too, was the history of the Welsh Baptist Church and the role it played in the early colonies at Pennepec Creek in Philadelphia, the Iron Hill in New Castle in Delaware and at the Pee Dee River in the back country of South Carolina. Overall, the book is a unique blend of genealogy, history and stories for those who love local history, and it's a wonderful keepsake not only for the descendants of the many families covered in the book but for all those who love early American history and for those in particular who love the Cape Fear area. - Sande_Warren

    Highly Recommended - A must read for Carolina history buffs

    "Journey to Cape Fear" is a well written book. Those who love Southern history will enjoy it a lot. It is what I call a "readable" book because the print is a nice size. For those doing genealogy research you will love the content pages, good index and great bibliography. The book is full of illustrations. The stories about the families that settled in the Cape Fear region are interesting. I found my Swain family in the book and what I found amazed me. I never knew the Swains were so connected to the sea. Also the description of life in Brunswick County was quite good. Who knew an unattached woman in her "twenties" would be called a spinster. Even the stories about other families not connected to my family made good reading.
