  • 1. Factory Direct by Paige, Jane
     
    Author(s):
    Abstract:
    For over a century tobacco was king in Durham. Then the factories that produced smoking tobacco and cigarettes closed in 1987. For almost two decades the sixteen-acre property with nine buildings and over one million square feet of space declined into dilapidated warehouses with sagging roofs and broken windows. Now new tenants are moving in. The Capitol Broadcasting Company and its chief executive officer, Jim Goodmon, have begun a $200 million project which is called the largest historical renovation in the history of North Carolina. Paige describes how this area is becoming a place to live, work, and play. New tenants of the American Tobacco Historic District include GlaxoSmithKline, Duke University, restaurants, and upscale condominiums.

  • 8. Kings of the Forest by Adams, Kevin
     
    Author(s):
    Abstract:
    Monarch butterflies begin their migration to Mexico from southern Canada and the eastern United States in late August. Many of the 100 million travelers will not complete the 3,000-mile journey, but their descendants will. Females lay eggs along the route, then die. The eggs hatch into the larval stage, then through all stages, till the new butterflies emerges. It may take several generations to reach Mexico and several to make it back to Canada, where the cycle begins again. In mid-September the monarchs pass through North Carolina. The best areas to view them are along the beaches and the gaps along the Blue Ridge Parkway and other mountain roads.
