High Point, nestled in the heart of the Piedmont Triad, has long
been at the forefront of progress, attracting those entrepreneurs
who were "up to something out of the ordinary"--a place where
spanking leads to tragedy, ransom notes are left in mailboxes and
people are railroaded through court. When Prohibition swept the
nation, High Point's first saloonist stayed in business for only
eighteen hours. High Point's speed-demon racecar drivers opted to
smuggle liquor in their uncatchable cars, which sparked the
beginning of NASCAR. Join veteran author Alice Sink as she explores
these and other tales, from the cruel and comical to the
mischievous and outrageous, in the story of this "international
city's" colorful past.
