“This is where the Lost Colony got lost, where the wild Wanderoo once wandered, and where giant sand geysers once sprouted. UFOs seem drawn here like bees to nectar, along with oddball inventors, flimflammers, moonshiners, street preachers, eccentric artists, imperial wizards, and interstate smugglers. [The Carolinas] are the home of giant topiary cats, haunted sheriff’s offices, the Moog Synthesizer, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, and the Gatling gun.”
