East and West Southern Pines Book Description :

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 priv...

Wrightwood Big Pines Book Description :

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 lo...

Iron in the Pines Book Description :

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.

Here, too, were men who made those years exciting: Benedict Arnold and his first step toward treason; Chrales Read, who dream...
