NC's Blacklands Treasure book

Sandwiched between the Albemarle Sound and the Pamlico River, the Blacklands of Northeastern North Carolina is home to some of the most agricultural land in the country.

McMullan Jr., tells the story of the region and the pioneer farmers who were determined to conquer the land and turn it into an agricultural goldmine.
