Some of us understand place in terms of family and community, landscape, or even the weather. For others, the idea of place becomes more distinct and particular: the sound of someone humming while washing dishes, the musical cadence of a mountain accent, the smell of a tobacco field under the hot Piedmont sun. Some of North Carolina's finest writers ruminate on the meaning of place in this collection of twenty-one original essays, untangling North Carolina's influence on their work, exploring how the idea of place resonates with North Carolinians, and illuminating why the state itself plays such a significant role in its own literature. Authors from every region of North Carolina are represented, from the Appalachians and the Piedmont to the Outer Banks and places in between. Amazing Place showcases a mix of familiar favorites and newer voices, expressing in their own words how North Carolina shapes the literature of its people. Contributors include Rosecrans Baldwin, Will Blythe, Belle Boggs, Fred Chappell, Jan DeBlieu, Pamela Duncan, Clyde Edgerton, Ben Fountain, Marianne Gingher, Judy Goldman, Stephanie Elizondo Griest, Randall Kenan, Jill McCorkle, Michael McFee, Lydia Millet, Robert Morgan, Jenny Offill, Michael Parker, Bland Simpson, Lee Smith, Wells Tower, and Monique Truong.

WHAT IS THE FORCE That drove them on foot across the land bridge from Asia to the New World long before recorded history? That keeps Joshua Warden on the wagon train headed to the California gold fields after losing so much? That is found in a shovel full of prairie soil-demanding that Amos Krebbs put down roots? That directs Stephano Romano's return to the sea? That moved Harry Krebbs from the Kansas prairie and focuses his eyes and those of his astronaut son, Alan, on the far horizon and beyond? That keeps the feet of industrialist Gilbert Krebbs and Congressman Bobby Dobbson firmly planted in the center? That drives a Monarch butterfly across a thousand miles of desert and mountains to a tiny spot on the California coast, where she has never been, but where she must return? That guides the sleek gray fish and the badly wounded Steve Romano to seek refuge in the Sea of Cortez? That fuels William Henry Stitt and his great grandson in their unending quest for knowledge? WHAT IS THE FORCE?
