The author of A Southerner Discovers the South has written in Tar Heels the best state book that I have seen. North Carolina, his native state, where his father, Josephus Daniels made history with his editorial policy, will never again suffer the ignominy that Virginia and South Carolina would impose upon it. From Tar Heels, it emerges with a varied personality, ""good, beautiful, varied, a long way from perfection.... The continuity is of peoples, not of buildings, of the pioneer possibility of equality and comradeship in equality."" To prove his thesis, he traces every aspect, industrial, agricultural, educational and personal.
