Heading Back to Black Land


Author(s):
Abstract:
A number of mountain farmers are leaving their small tracts of rocky soil in the western part of North Carolina and are taking up acreage in the coastal plain section. Between the American Revolution and the American Civil War, many people of the coastal plain and piedmont moved into the mountains, but now that the soil has worn out and washed away, they are moving back to the east.
