    Hands-down, the best single volume reference for NC-bound visitors

    I've worked with this book in its earlier editions. Each edition goes from strength to strength. It would not surprise me that long-time North Carolina residents keep a copy for their personal reference. As a visitor to NC for more than 40 years, I learn something new with each edition, and, of course, am reminded of things I used to know but have forgotten. For the either the casual visitor or someone interested in retiring or relocating to this fabulous part of the world, the journey should begin with this book.
