North Carolina Through Four Centuries

By William S. Powell


Awards & Distinctions

1989 Mayflower Cup for Nonfiction, Society of Mayflower Descendants in the State of North Carolina

This successor to the classic Lefler-Newsome North Carolina: The History of a Southern State, published in 1954, presents a fresh survey history that includes the contemporary scene. Drawing upon recent scholarship, the advice of specialists, and his own knowledge, Powell has created a splendid narrative that makes North Carolina history accessible to both students and general readers. For years to come, this will be the standard college text and an essential reference for home and office.
