"In the first full-length - and copiously illustrated - history of Chapel Hill, author James Vickers describes in lively and entertaining detail the rich history of the village which in a century and a half of progressive struggle interspersed with threatening adversity evolved from a sparsely populated backwood crossroads to become the cultural center of North Carolina.
"The history of the University has been recorded, but Mr. Vickers chooses to focus on the development of Chapel Hill both as a unique village and as a 'university' town. He freely intersperses anecdotes and vignettes with historical facts in a study that encompasses the full range of Chapel Hill society during two centuries of interesting, influential, and eccentric characters.
