Old Salem And Mountains To Sea Trail
Part One: Old Salem. Just as our country was being forged in the halls of the Continental Congress and birthed in the Revolutionary war, a group of hardy Moravian immigrants was building a settlement in the Piedmont of North Carolina. The town of Salem sprang up and still remains just outside of Winston-Salem. Today it is a living museum, a window into some of the earliest founders of our state. Well visit with the President of Old Salem Inc., a company devoted to the settlement and to educating North Carolinians and other visitors on life in colonial North Carolina. Follow us back in time when Charlotte Talks.

Part Two: North Carolina's Mountains To Sea Trail. Danny Bernstein is very familiar with the hiking trails around western North Carolina, but when she decided to walk the Mountains-to-Sea Trail, she got to experience the beauty, quirkiness and vibrancy of 1000 miles of North Carolina trails and the people sites, towns and nature along the way. She's compiled her trip on that trail into a new book that is much more than just a guide book of the trail. We'll talk about her experiences on this trail and why it's become so important for her to share this bit of North Carolina with others, when Charlotte Talks.
