Great Article About Growing up in North Carolina

farm

In 1908 Joseph Mitchell, former writer for The New Yorker, was born in Robeson County, North Carolina and last week The New Yorker magazine published a portion of his unfinished memoir “Days in the Branch: Remembering the South in the City.” The excerpt is about growing up in the country of Robeson County.  It is a magnificent piece full of beautiful descriptions of the people, culture, nature and  landscape of Robeson County in the late 1920’s and 1930’s.  You don’t even have to be from NC to read it, you just have to have been a wide-eyed kid.
