A historic North Carolina mountain legend made internationally famous by the Kingston Trio’s 1958 chart-topping ballad is the impetus for a new non-fiction book by rising author Charlotte Corbin Barnes.   The Tom Dooley Files: My Search For The Truth Behind The Legend goes into far greater detail than any of its predecessors in an effort to discover what really happened that led to the hanging of Civil War Veteran Thomas C. Dula [a.k.a. Tom Dooley] for his part in the murder of Laura Foster, the girl he was reportedly going to marry.

The Tom Dooley Files is filled with the oral histories of the descendants of people alive at the time the murder took place.  Read what they have to say about the events surrounding the murder according to the stories that have been passed down through their families for generations.  The Tom Dooley Files is an interesting and informative read whether you are familiar with the legend and the Tom Dooley song or not.  Now available, The Tom Dooley Files: My Search For The Truth Behind The Legend by Charlotte Corbin Barnes is a LIMITED EDITION offering in hardcover only.
