Roger Manley, foreword by Mark Sceurman & Mark Moran • Spanish moss reaches out from dark trees on lonely roads, the Great Dismal Swamp shelters unknown beasts and near-beasts, the coastline is marked with thousands of hidden inlets where pirate ships buried treasures and German U-boats prowled. With all this and so much more, is it any wonder that the Carolinas, North and South, are filled with places and people that can only be called weird? And in our book, that’s a compliment. Not everything about the Carolinas is strange. Pepsi-Cola was invented here, and it’s where Krispy Kremes first hit it big. Babe Ruth batted his first professional home run in Fayetteville, and the first English baby born in America debuted on Roanoke Island. Unfortunately, she came to a sad end, as did her whole “Lost Colony.” Just one of the many Carolina mysteries you can try your hand at solving. Hardcover with jacket, full color, 9 X 9, 256 pages.
