    I enjoyed most of it. I noticed a few errors throughout, which was surprising. A missing quotation mark, and a misspelled word. Overall I enjoyed reading short stories from locals. I've never been to Wilmington, but hope to one day. This book has created a more knowledgable, and fun lens to see it through when I do visit. Though the history portion toward the end was necessary, I felt like so many different perspectives on the same event made it too repetitive. I also found it oddly placed betwee I enjoyed most of it.

I also found it oddly placed between modern experiences, and fiction. It almost seemed like it needed to be its own separate book.

    This collection of essays and poems about Wilmington was eye-opening. Although I graduated from New Hanover High School, I had never heard of the Insurrection of 1898 until I read the essays in this book. This horrifying display of inhumanity was never mentioned in any of my high school history classes. The authors of these essays have piqued my interest in this sad chapter of Wilmington's history.

Other essays in this book read like love letters to the city of my youth, and stirred many fond memories of growing up in Wilmington. If this book goes into a second printing, I would recommend that the editor correct some of the errors that other reviewers have mentioned, including changing "principle" to "principal" on page 151.

    An enjoyable read that looks at the City of Wilmington. As others have indicated, there is a bit of unevenness about the individual works here, but overall it provides a very good snapshot of Wilmington. This type of format, with essays and subject matter varied, is good format for travel type books because there is no one monologue that can get boring. Wilmington has a unique history.

    Overall, excellent and enjoyable anthology. However, the quality of the essays is not uniform. Still, this book is an excellent way to get to know the city, it’s people, and the state.

    As always with a compilation, some of these were stronger than others, but there was a surprising amount of exhilarating freshness and creativity in here. I liked the essays that dealt more with Wilmington and seemed less, "how can we squeeze this author in here." But overall, a quick and enjoyable read.
