Recollections of the Catawba Valley


Contains recollections of two long-time residents of Catawba Valley, North Carolina and historical tales of the region


Catawba River Valley (N.C. and S.C.)


Published in 1983, Recollections of the Catawba Valley is a selection of stories chosen by Alexander Mull and Gordon Boger who were long time citizens of the valley. The Mull family was one of the earliest settlers in the region, and Boger, although born elsewhere, was considered a native of the valley. Some of the stories in this volume were originally published in The News Herald of Morganton, as both authors were longtime contributors to the paper. The stories in this volume are a collection of family stories, local history, and mountain folklore.
