The first single-volume reference to the events, institutions, and cultural forces that have defined the state, the "Encyclopedia of North Carolina" is a landmark publication that will serve those who love and live in North Carolina for generations to come. Editor, William S. Powell, whom the "Raleigh News & Observer" described as a "living repository of information on all things North Carolinian," spent fifteen years developing this volume. With contributions by more than 550 volunteer writers - including scholars, librarians, journalists, and many others - it is a true "people's encyclopedia" of North Carolina. The volume includes more than 2,000 entries, presented alphabetically, consisting of longer essays on major subjects, briefer entries, and short summaries and definitions. Most entries include suggestions for further reading. An informative and engaging compendium, the "Encyclopedia of North Carolina" is abundantly illustrated with nearly 400 photographs and maps. It is both a celebration and a gift - from the citizens of North Carolina, to the citizens of North Carolina.
