This lively collection of 34 of the best history walks in North Carolina highlights the richness and diversity of the state's history, from the time of its first settlement to the present. Veteran guidebook author Lynn Setzer leads readers on short walks in state parks and natural areas, state historic sites, charming small towns from the mountains to the sea, and the state's largest cities. Along the way, she brings to life some of our state's most momentous events, most accomplished and notorious characters, and most famous firsts. These walks are varied, pleasant, and accessible to almost every reader, including older day-trippers and families with young children. Some walks include add-ons, should readers wish to make a longer day of it. Organized by theme and location, the walks are accompanied by maps and photographs, as well as information on each walk's length and difficulty. A list of sources directs readers to additional information so that they can continue a deeper exploration of North Carolina history. |This lively collection of 34 of the best history walks in North Carolina highlights the richness and diversity of the state's history, from the time of its first settlement to the present.
