Excerpt from Song of an Unsung Place

“When Bill Mansfield explores and documents folklife in northeastern North Carolina, he proves what we might have suspected—that the mountains are not the only region of the state with richly varied and distinctive cultural traditions. His Song Of An Unsung Place takes us straight to the crabbers and crab-pot makers, hunters and trappers, quilters and cooks, singers and musicians, decoy makers, boat builders and others whose families have lived and worked in the region for generations. Reading their stories is the next best thing to being there.” -Beverly Patterson, Director of Folklife Program of the North Carolina Arts Council
