For the next few months, I’ll be giving away copies of this wonderful little book, Carteret County, North Carolina: History & Folklore.

The contagious spirits of Grayden and Mary Paul endure in this reprinting of a beloved Tar Heel classic. For decades, the Pauls educated and entertained locals and tourists alike with their engrossing storytelling and unforgettable songs, which can now be enjoyed as their lasting legacy. From the history of the first inhabitants of the region to tales about whaling, pirates, shipwrecks and rum-running, the lore of Carteret County is both a captivating read and an apt reminder of how important it is to preserve and promote the history of a community for generations to come.

Winners will be drawn at random on Wednesday of each week, contacted and announced here.
