Review Quotes



This will be the most fun North Carolina history book you will ever read, and it will have many students across the state wishing it were part of the curriculum. In his "A Nutshell History of North Carolina," Ben Fortson travels from the state's piratical beginnings to its growth as the "The New 'Old North State'" via 2015. Told and illustrated in a series of humorous and entertaining vignettes, Fortson shows a flair for the funny -- and education. Mountain Times


"From its dubious beginnings as a pirate-filled colony to a popular tourist destination, North Carolina has an amazingly colorful history. In A Nutshell History of North Carolina, author and illustrator Ben Fortson presents that history in the form of off-the-wall anecdotes, poignant insights and sublimely silly illustrations.


Take a hilarious look at Daniel Boone's larger-than-life Carolina personality. Peruse an uproarious account of the Andrew Jackson birthplace controversy or politically astute commentary on the power of tobacco in the state.


Fortson takes readers on a side-splitting and educational ride through the annals of Tar Heel State history." Black Mountain News
