The Decade of Transformation
by Philip Gerard (Author)
Buy for $9.99 Excerpt

This title brings together a popular series of articles originally published by Our State magazine about the lively history of North Carolina. This book is the first in a series that will chronicle the history of North Carolina, decade by decade. Written in an accessible style, this title covers the breadth of the geography, cultures, and events of North Carolina that go far beyond the traditional textbook outlines of a white, “ruling-class” canon. From Jazz and traveling big bands to the expansion of railroads and electricity, Gerard has a particular talent that he can bring as a fiction writer to lively nonfiction, and history enthusiasts will treasure this book--and the books of subsequent decades that are planned for later seasons. The book will include Our State branding on the cover. The interior will have a lively magazine-like look.
