One-time city editor of the old Raleigh Observer, the author's knowledge of men and affairs in his native state is extensive and important. Pervading this book is the charm of reminiscences of childhood before the Civil War, student days in Chapel Hill, and life in reconstruction days. Originally published in 1927.
