Overview


The Piedmont Triad of North Carolina has played a remarkable role in the history of the Southeast--one day at a time--for centuries. Against the backdrop of major historical events and movements, the Triad is also flecked with smaller gems of oft-overlooked history. Prolific author and Triad native Alice Sink chronicles these events, reviving a story for each day of the year. From a Civil War buried treasure to gypsy kidnappings and runaway marriages, each day brings with it an exciting, bite-size adventure through history. Residents from Winston-Salem to High Point to Greensboro and beyond can all enjoy this volume for their daily dose of that old Piedmont Triad history.
