The Mysterious Case of George Higby Throop (1818-1896): Or the Search for the Author of the Novels Nag's Head, Bertie and Lynde Weiss

Record #:
North Carolina came late into the history of American fiction. Until the middle of the 19th century, few novelists had used the state for background or character, and often life as it actually existed in North Carolina was not taken into account. But in 1850 several novels appeared in which North Carolina received its first contemporary fictional treatment by one who knew of and had been a part of life in the state--Gregory Seaworthy, aka George Higby Throop.
