Weaving research and interpretation around dozens of historic sites and the lives of ordinary people who lived and worked nearby, The Way We Lived in North Carolina explores the social history of the Tar Heel State from the precolonial period to the present. First published in 1983 as a five-volume series, this comprehensive state history is now available in a revised and up-to-date single volume with more than 250 photographs and over two dozen maps. Based on the premise that the past can be most fully understood through the combined experience of reading history and visiting historic places, The Way We Lived serves as a travel guide to North Carolina's history, enhancing the reader's appreciation and understanding of historic preservation. Discussion of recently designated historic sites has been added to this edition, as have twenty-eight detailed maps newly prepared by Mark Anderson Moore. A new appendix provides an extensive list of over thirty historic sites to visit. This volume provides an entertaining and informative guide to North Carolina history for students and professionals, teens and seniors, natives and newcomers. Contributors: Elizabeth A. Fenn, Peter H.
