Overview

To cure your curiosity or to supply you with clever quips at cocktail parties this collection of stories originally written by lauded North Carolina historian Dr. H.G. Jones for his long-standing "In Light of History" series is a must-read.

At times informative, at times moving and on occasion side-splittingly hilarious, the tales in this book span four hundred years of North Carolina history. Across the golden age of pirates, the colonial period and the American-Revolution, the Civil War and Reconstruction. Prohibition and every era in between, these stories of characters from the high seas, the coast, down east, the mountains, the piedmont and the sandhills cover every part of the Tar Heel State.

This revised and updated edition contains ten additional accounts of Tar Heel history, accompanied by archival images from the lifetime collection of Dr. Jones and a map highlighting each story's geographic interest area.
