The Yadkin River Story


The Yadkin River Story The Yadkin River has been a part of North Carolina lore for centuries. Daniel Boone traveled its paths and modern residents live, work and play by the river's banks. It's also one of the more controversial rivers in our state given that a private corporation owns and controls much of the Yadkin Rivers shoreline. Two journalists, Phoebe Zerwick and Christine Rucker, set out to write about and photograph some of the people and places along the Yadkin and to learn some of its secrets. Riverkeeper Dean Naujoks paddled the length of the Yadkin as well. They join us to talk about what they learned.
