Description


There is much history in the Bull City, and some of it can be found within these pages. Journalist and local historian Jim Wise relates how Bull Durham smoking tobacco put Durham, North Carolina, on the map; how a plastic cow and an oversized flag cut the city council down to size; how it felt to travel back in time at the Duke Homestead; and how sportsman Al Mann and "Mom" Ruby Planck left indelible marks on their hometown. Durham's stories are its own, but in them readers may find people, places and truths that resonate with hometowns everywhere.
