The author tells her story with sincerity and the belief that sharing this journey is her life's purpose. shoes and experience a myriad of unexpected events, characters and situations, some of which defy explanation.

Tar Heels - North Carolina's Forgotten Economy: Pitch, Tar, Turpentine & Longleaf Pines

Kent Wrench, Editor

North Carolina acquired the nickname, “the Tar Heel State” due to its relationship with tar, pitch and turpentine.

England and much of Europe had devastated their timber resources. England turned its focus toward the colonies and the colony of North Carolina had a most abundant supply of naval stores; with a ready market in Europe, it became our cash crop. This volume, with many images that have almost disappeared from our world will give insight to this past lifestyle of our ancestors. 142 pages.
