The Coastal Chronicles Volume I (Paperback)
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
For more than four centuries, the Cape Fear and North Carolina coasthas seen everything from Indian wars to pirates, British redcoats and patriot militiamen. Its shores have been home to stately plantations and signers of the Declaration of Independence. We've hosted lady spies and mighty forts. Gray-clad rebels faced down blue jacketed Union foes, and everyone faced down the specter of death from diseases like Yellow Fever. In this collection of stories from Coastal Chronicles magazine, Jack E. Fryar, Jr. presents twenty-seven true, factually accurate tales of the historic North Carolina coast. Written as a fiction writer or storyteller would, these stories put a human face on the dramatic and sometimes humorous history of the Tar Heel State, and span more than four centuries of events. "There is great history in these books." says North Carolina Governor Michael Easley; and the collection has been called "...fascinating...an outstanding offering..." by Our State magazine.
