Randolph County's most colorful characters come to life within these pages, including Rufus Hussey, the Beanshooter Man who whittled slingshots and gave Johnny Carson a run for his money; and the Petty family, whose NASCAR connection spans four generations. Tar Heel native Chip Womick has spent over two decades writing about the people, places, and things that make Randolph County special, from the smallest church in the state to the largest walk-through natural habitat zoo in the world—and a whole lot more in between.
