There are many stories about the history of the Piedmont Triad area of North Carolina (including Greensboro, Winston-Salem and High Point) that even the natives have never heard.

Learn about the nightclub in High Point that once hosted the likes of Ella Fitzgerald and Duke Ellington and the famous short story writer O. Henry's connection to a Greensboro drugstore. Have you heard the story of Lexington native John Andrew Roman, put to death on circumstantial evidence, or the local World War II fighter plane pilot who flew eighty-two missions to prevent German fighters from attacking American bombers? These fascinating true tales featuring towns throughout the region will delight and inform readers of all ages.
