Description

Wilkes County, North Carolina was formed in 1778. It possesses a rich history, as it has been home to Native Americans, intrepid explorers like Christopher Gist and Daniel Boone, wartime heroes like Benjamin Cleveland and General James B. Gordon, and well-known scoundrels like Tom Dooley and Otto Wood. Over the years, Wilkes produced timber, moonshine, tobacco, NASCAR, Lowe's Home Improvement, and Americana music. This comprehensive history of the county explores the development of one of the most beautiful and interesting areas of the United States. Drawn from the local history collection of Wilkes Community College, local newspapers, and personal accounts, this book will entertain visitors and long-time residents alike. For more information, contact Dr. Fay Byrd at Wilkes Community College at (336) 838-6114. This is the black and white edition.
