This book recounts stories that speak with different and sometimes contradictory voices. In both format and contents, the book reflects the diversity of its subject. At its core is a narrative history spanning North Carolina's past and present, from Roanoke Island in 1585 to the Research Triangle in 2009. To bring that history to life, interpolated into the narrative are exemplary stories, portraits, and texts. Stories present oral history in original voices; portraits offer profiles of significant personalities or organizations; and texts present primary documents from newspapers, memoirs, and public or synagogue records. Collectively, these gatherings of history comprise a Jewish heritage, a folklore that roots Jews in North Carolina. The book joins a growing list of state Jewish histories; it supports the argument that there are many Souths, but that there are also many North Carolinas.
