Coastal Plain

Coastal Plain Map

The abundant lands of North Carolina’s Coastal Plain are home to most of the state’s tobacco farms. There are large military bases in Fayetteville and Jacksonville, but most of the towns in this region are small farm communities, many of which are struggling to keep pace with a changing economy. Authors Clyde Edgerton, Jill McCorkle, and Allan Gurganus have all set novels in this area and Margaret Maron’s Judge Deborah Knott is a popular fictional resident of the Coastal Plain.

  1. My third Logan Hunter mystery, Hell Swamp, is set in Pender County. I’d like to add it to the list. Thanks!

    Yes, I just ordered your book last week. As soon as we have the book in hand, we’ll write a brief description and add it to the county and regional lists.
