Overview


This factual, warm-hearted and offbeat guide introduces you to some fantastic wonders, part of a North Carolina you never knew existed. Updated and revised, you'll learn about dozens of one-f-a-king sights and activities from all across the Tarheel State. To read about them is high entertainment; to visit them is to be startled by the amazing natural phenomena and triumphs of human resourcefulness to be seen along your way. Consider these places and events: The Turkey Olympics, an event featuring turkey races and a turkey dress-up contest; the second smallest post office in America; the Outer Space Venus's-Flytrap Nursery, in the only place where the plants grow naturally; the National Whistling Convention and the World's Largest Collection of Recorded Whistling Music; and the World's Most Complicated Bridge, a one-quarter-mile long construction that took a mere eight years to build! Best-selling author Jerry Bledsoe entertained readers for years with his columns in the Greensboro Daily News. He is the author of numerous books, more recently Bitter Blood, Blood Games, and The Angel Doll. Sara Pitzer is the author of several regional guidebooks, including North Carolina: Off the Beaten Path(tm) (available from The Globe Pequot Press). She lives in the Piedmont area of North Carolina and works for a daily newspaper as a feature writer. (5 1/2' X 8 1/2', 230 pages, black-and-white photos)
