North Carolina's dramatic mountains and beaches tend to overshadow the state's central Piedmont and Sandhills regions. However, visitors who take the time to experience the woodlands and hills that grace the heart of the state will find themselves enchanted by the same sturdy beauty that has nurtured generations of intellectuals and artists, from early 20th-century wit O. Henry to the modern master of humor David Sedaris.
