This is a chronicle of the North Carolina Piedmont. Although Salisbury is "home" and "The River" (the Yadkin) is a dominant theme, the book has a wider scope, for through her father the author presents a picture of life in eastern Carolina in antebellum days and, through her mother, the university village of Cahpel Hill in the early nineteenth century.

Originally published in 1938.
