Rough Weather Makes Good Timber

Carolinians Recall


In the simple unpretentious dignity of everyday speech, elderly Tar Heels share their fascinating and touching stories of North Carolina's past, a time when activities and cares were closely associated with extracting a living from the soil. The oldest person Ginns interviewed was ninety-seven, the youngest, fifty-three. The earliest firsthand accounts date from about 1885, and the latest reach into the postdepression era.

Originally published in 1977.
