Described by an early visitor as "the Goodliest Soile Under the Cope of Heaven," the land that would become North Carolina presented its first settlers with the promise of prosperity, wealth, and--with luck--liberty, too.
Since North Carolina's beginnings, in the age of Queen Elizabeth I, the people who came here and stayed found that, while life may not always have been easy, between two richer and more powerful neighbors, it has at least been a challenge they were willing to meet.
