About the book:

Song of an Unsung Place is a celebration of a seemingly forgotten way of life. Combining the observations of an excellent folklorist with the striking photography of an amazing local talent, it brings the past to life, and proves that folklore isnt just something for the history books.

The mainland of Hyde County presents a stark vista: mile after mile of flat vacant land interrupted by pine forests, expansive fields, drainage ditches, impenetrable swamps and clusters of buildings that may or may not be a town. To many people it looks like the perfect picture of the middle-of-nowhere. Strangers passing through this place usually ask themselves: How does anyone live here?

Of course people do live here, and if you talk with them you can get beyond the lonely impressions created by the austere countryside. You discover they like Hyde Countys minimalist landscape where progress does not obscure the wonder of nature, and where the seasonsrather than a time clockdetermine the pace of life. -William Mansfield from Song of an Unsung Place
