Thanks to a folk ballad released by the Kingston Trio back in 1958, a North Carolina mountain legend became an international sensation.  NOW, comes a stirring new book… one that is causing a sudden rebirth in interest in this decades old story!  The Tom Dooley Files: My Search for the Truth Behind the Legend gives an old legend a new lease on life!

The Tom Dooley Files by rising author Charlotte Corbin Barnes is the result of nearly 30-years of research.  The book literally teems with fascinating material about the events surrounding this historic murder.   Barnes’ book is already being hailed as “The Tom Dooley Bible” and has just been awarded the Historical Book Award for 2017 by the North Carolina Society of Historians. The Tom Dooley Files offers exquisite detail about that fateful day in May when “frail” Laura Foster “simply up and disappears.”   Are the rumors true that Tom wanted to marry Laura?   If so, then why would he kill her?  And, if he didn’t kill her, who did and why?  So many unanswered questions…until now!

Author Charlotte Corbin Barnes

     The Tom Dooley Files contains oral histories to help readers determine the “truths” surrounding the legend for themselves.  “It’s a great read whether you’ve heard of Tom Dooley or not.”  In addition, it’s “a most noteworthy book for today!”
