During the 1930s in the United States, the Works Progress Administration developed the Federal Writersa€™ Project to support writers and artists while making a national effort to document the countrya€™s shared history and culture. The American Guide series consists of individual guides to each of the states. Little-known authorsa€”many of whom would later become celebrated literary figuresa€”were commissioned to write these important books. John Steinbeck, Saul Bellow, Zora Neale Hurston, and Ralph Ellison are among the more than 6, 000 writers, editors, historians, and researchers who documented this celebration of local histories. Photographs, drawings, driving tours, detailed descriptions of towns, and rich cultural details exhibit each statea€™s unique flavor.The Tar Heel State Federal Writersa#39; Project ... 469; Pasquotank, 190, 291; Pee Dee, 376; Perquimans, 279; Pigeon, 440, 452; Roanoke, 283, 309, 475; Rocky, 398; Scuppernong, 494; suitable for water sports, xxvi; Tar-Pamlico, 283, 320; Toe, anbsp;...
