Western North Carolina Since the Civil War, Paperback / softback Book

Western North Carolina Since the Civil War Paperback / softback


No region has undergone more dramatic changes in the last century than Western North Carolina.

Published in 1973, Western North Carolina Since the Civil War takes a look at the mountain people and their uniquely structured economic, political, social, and cultural systems.

The Van Noppens specifically explore the different qualities of the mountain people such as their institutions, traditions, customs, and arts and crafts.

Beginning with a dark period of social and economic disintegration after the end of the Civil War, the study traces the mountain peoples' lives from isolation to economic booms all while maintaining their traditions and cultural heritage.
