About this title:

Synopsis: North CarolinaMyths and Legends explores unusual phenomena, strange events, and mysteries in North Carolina’s history. Each episode included in the book is a story unto itself, and the tone and style of the book is lively and easy to read for a general audience interested in North Carolina history.

Read about the Cherokee legend of the Judaculla rock. Try to figure out if Tom Dula, subject of many a local myth and a popular folk song, really did murder his wife. Speculate as to what really caused the Carolina Bays indentations.

From the Back Cover: 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, North Carolina Myths and Legends makes history fun and pulls back the curtain on some of the state’s most fascinating and compelling stories.
