From the Roanoke Colonies to the dawn of the twenty-first century, the story of North Carolina’s governors is a prism through which to view Tar Heel history. This volume contains biographical sketches of the ninety-nine men, from Ralph Lane to Michael F. Easley, who have served as North Carolina’s chief executive. Arranged alphabetically, the informative biographical sketches are accompanied by pictures or signatures of the governors.
