Synopsis: Written by lauded North Carolina historian Dr. H.G. Jones in his long-standing In Light of History series for the Associated Press, the tales in Scoundrels, Rogues and Heroes of the Old North State 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, they include stories of characters from the high seas, the coast, "down east," the mountains, the piedmont, the sand hills—every part of the state.
At times informative, at times moving and on occasion side-splittingly hilarious, this collection of stories with amusing pen-and-ink drawings is a must for North Carolinians young and old alike and a thoughtful gift for visitors.
About the Author: Dr. Jones was for many years curator of the North Carolina Collection at UNC Chapel Hill, has taught history and has played a major part in many initiatives to preserve North Carolina history. In 2002, Dr. Jones received the North Carolina Award for Public Service for his relentless pursuit of North Carolina History. Father-daughter team K. Randell and Caitlin Jones have made their contribution to North Carolina history by gathering together and arranging for publication these valuable stories.
