The editor's introduction to Good Country People suggests that this fascinating volume is to be the first of a series. We should hope that this is so. These authors' fresh looks at the complex world of Eastern North Carolina are "irregular" only in their avoidance of academic jargon and any single specialized perspective. Culture as a plural promises a diversity that is immediately provided in the contrast between the first two essays. Stanley Knick's survey of the history and present circumstances of Native American populations in eastern North Carolina gives a brief working definition of culture, along with a series of Native American contributions to that dominant culture we live in and recognize as "ours."
