BOOK EXCERPT:

This original work illustrates the storied history of Southern Pines, focusing specifically on the merging of the East and West sides. West Southern Pines, whose population was comprised entirely of African Americans, became one of the first chartered towns governed by and for a minority in 1923. However, in 1931, the dominantly white East side, a resort community, annexed the West. Using a myriad of historical photographs, authors Sara Lindau and Pamela M. Blue share the story of how the two sides of Southern Pines endured a tumultuous period of unification. The images allow the reader to take a step back in history and witness the everyday lives of both the white population and the black residents of the area, who made a living catering to the privileged vacationers and celebrities.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The international runaway bestseller is now a Major Television Event from executive producer M. Night Shyamalan, starring Matt Dillon and premiering May 14th on FOX. Secret service agent Ethan Burke arrives in Wayward Pines, Idaho, with a clear mission: locate and recover two federal agents who went missing in the bucolic town one month earlier. But within minutes of his arrival, Ethan is involved in a violent accident. He comes to in a hospital, with no ID, no cell phone, and no briefcase. The medical staff seems friendly enough, but something feels...off. As the days pass, Ethan's investigation into the disappearance of his colleagues turns up more questions than answers. Why can't he get any phone calls through to his wife and son in the outside world? Why doesn't anyone believe he is who he says he is? And what is the purpose of the electrified fences surrounding the town? Are they meant to keep the residents in? Or something else out? Each step closer to the truth takes Ethan further from the world he thought he knew, from the man he thought he was, until he must face a horrifying fact--he may never get out of Wayward Pines alive. 2013 International Thriller Award Nominee

BOOK EXCERPT:

Nestled at 6,000 feet in the San Gabriel Mountains, the village of Wrightwood sits amidst a mountain range next to the finest ski slopes east of Los Angeles. This picturesque community has been a cherished mountain retreat removed from the hustle and bustle of city life, where skyscrapers give way to towering pine trees and roads run parallel to trails and ski runs. During the early twenties, the area's appeal as a gorgeous setting for hiking and other outdoor activities led the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors to develop a year-round recreational facility west of Wrightwood, known as Big Pines County Park. Now a haven for commuters, Wrightwood remains a close-knit community despite the influx of more than half a million skiers and mountain lovers annually.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Deep in the heart of southern New Jersey lies an area of some 96,000 acres of sprawling wilderness. It is the famous Wharton Tract which the state of New Jersey purchased in 1954 for a watershed, game preserve, and park. Many people know and love these wooded acres. Each year, people by the thousands visit Batsto Village, once the center of the iron industry that thrived on the tract more than a century ago. With warmth and accuracy, Arthur D. Pierce tells the story of the years when iron was king, and around it rose a rustic feudal economy. There were glass factories, paper mills, cotton mills, and brickmaking establishments. Here, too, were men who made those years exciting: Benedict Arnold and his first step toward treason; Chrales Read, who dreamed of an empire and died in exile; Revolutionary heroes and heroines, privateers, and rogues. The author's vivid pictures of day-to-day life in the old iron communities are based upon careful research. This book proves that the human drama of documented history belies any notion that fiction is stranger than truth.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Carefully pieced together by author Stephen E. Massengill, Around Southern Pines: A Sandhills Album provides a fascinating and unique insight into life in the Sandhills area of North Carolina from the arrival of postcard photographer E.C. Eddy in 1907 to his retirement in 1945. The work includes not only portraits of such famous Americans as Lincoln Beachey, Gutzon Borglum, James Boyd, Annie Oakley, Donald Ross, and Walter J. Travis, but also views of ordinary citizens at work and play in Moore County. Chronicling such events as parades, fox hunts, golf tournaments, fairs and carnivals, slave reunions, and the first airplane flight in the county, Eddy's photographic collection presents a definitive account of life and expansion in the Sandhills during the first half of the twentieth century. From the resorts of Southern Pines and Pinehurst to the surrounding towns of Aberdeen, Carthage, Lakeview, and Pine Bluff, Eddy's images beautifully illustrate a rich period in American history.
