Abstract:
A semblance of a town since the 1840s, Tabor City in Columbus County was incorporated in 1905. Known as \"The Yam Capital of the World,\" the town of 3,000 residents celebrates its largest annual event, the North Carolina Yam Festival, the fourth weekend in October. It is also the home of Horace Carter, founder of the Tabor Tribune, whose courageous anti-Ku Klux Klan editorials won the 1953 Pulitzer Prize for Meritorious Service. Comer describes what visitors to the town will find and what the town seeks for its future.

Abstract:
Greensboro Artist William Mangum captures the heritage of the state in a book he calls Carolina Preserves. Recognizing that a way of life was fast disappearing, Mangum sought a way to combine stories and images of the state's heritage. He asked forty-eight North Carolinians to write essays discussing what influenced their lives, work, and spiritual centers. Mangum then created individual art work to accompany the writings. The book took three years to complete and contains 130 paintings.

Four hundred million years ago Pilot Mountain existed as an ocean beach before upheavals created its mountain chain. First surveyed in 1751, the mountain passed through several interesting owners before the state purchased it in 1968. It became North Carolina's fourteenth state park. Each year over 400,000 visitors enjoy its spectacular views and stunning quartz pinnacle that rises 1,400 feet above the valley floor.
