Tar Heel History on Foot
Veteran guidebook author Lynn Setzer, a North Carolina native, leads readers on 34 short walks in state parks and natural areas, state historic sites, charming small towns from the mountains to the sea, and the state’s largest cities. Setzer brings to life momentous events, accomplished and notorious characters, and the most famous “firsts.” These walks are varied, pleasant, and accessible to most readers, including older day-trippers and families with young children. Organized by theme and location, the walks have maps and photographs, and information on each’s length and difficulty. A list of sources directs readers to additional information. Softcover ($20), e-book ($19.99), 66 b&w images, 39 maps, 368 pages.
