Myths and Mysteries of North Carolina: True Stories of the Unsolved and Unexplained

Overview

The Lost Colony What would you think if you returned to your village after years away only to find it deserted? That's the heart of what's become known as America's oldest mystery—the disappearance of the settlers on Roanoke Island sometime between 1587 and 1590. Tsul 'Kalu and the Judaculla Rock According to Cherokee lore, a cave high above the Blue Ridge Parkway is home to the devil Tsul 'Kalu—and the etchings on a big soapstone rock down below were made by Tsul 'Kalu's talons.

Overview

The Lost Colony What would you think if you returned to your village after years away only to find it deserted? That's the heart of what's become known as America's oldest mystery—the disappearance of the settlers on Roanoke Island sometime between 1587 and 1590. Tsul 'Kalu and the Judaculla Rock According to Cherokee lore, a cave high above the Blue Ridge Parkway is home to the devil Tsul 'Kalu—and the etchings on a big soapstone rock down below were made by Tsul 'Kalu's talons. That's the legend. But the marks are clearly intentional. Who really made them? And why? The Sad Tale of Tom Dula Sometimes a national legend gets the facts wrong, and the fiction just keeps on growing. The story of Tom Dula—who was hanged in 1868 for murdering his fiancée—is a case in point. Was Tom really guilty? If not, who was? Why was his fiancée murdered in the first place? From Pee Dee A.D. to the Spirits of Salisbury, Myths and Mysteries of North Carolina makes history fun and pulls back the curtain on some of the state's most fascinating and compelling stories.
