Originally published as hugely popular serialized articles for Our State magazine, this book chronicles events in North Carolina in the 1940s. Author Philip Gerard focuses each chapter on a lively and illuminating set of events in the era, such as the music explosion around John Coltrane and Thelonious Monk, shipbuilding in wartime, a harsh era of hurricanes and floods, as well as tobacco as the king of the farming and industrial sectors. This book is the first in a series of small, richly illustrated books about North Carolina history through the decades.
