North Carolina

A History

By William S. Powell

 
With a new preface and concluding chapter by the author

A leading authority on the people and events that have shaped North Carolina over four centuries, Powell here provides a sharply drawn overall history of the state for general readers. In twelve chapters this volume traces North Carolina's history from England's initial efforts to found a colony in America in the sixteenth century to uncertain and often-turbulent times as the final quarter of the twentieth century approached.

About the Author

William S. Powell is professor emeritus of history at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His many books include North Carolina through Four Centuries, which won the 1989 Mayflower Cup for Nonfiction.
