Carroll C. Jones

Two local authors win award

November 30, 2016

Jan-Carol Publishing announces the honoring of two of its authors, Carroll C. Jones and Edie Hutchins Burnette, by the North Carolina Society of Historians.

Jones' "Rebel Rousers" is a historical fiction novel set during the American Civil War with a story of a young Rebel soldier from North Carolina. Jones' detailed, historical research contributed to his receiving the President's Award out of more than 600 entries received by the organization.

In 2015, Jones was awarded the society's Clark Cox Historical Fiction Award for his work on his first release, "Masters of the East Fork." Jones is a native of Canton, North Carolina and now resides in Morristown, Tennessee.

Burnette's "Mountain Echoes" is a compilation of historical stories rooted in the history of Western North Carolina and the Southern Appalachians. It tells the history of how the wilderness was tamed through the stories of some of its strongest, most determined people. Years of research and her detailed illustrations contributed to the book's success. "Mountain Echoes" is Burnette's first release. She is also native of North Carolina and resides in Canton, North Carolina.

The North Carolina Society of Historians was formed in 1941 for the purpose of collecting and preserving North Carolina's history, traditions and folklore. Each year, the society reviews hundreds of entries in several categories including books and other media.

"Rebel Rousers" and "Mountain Echoes" were published by Jan-Carol Publishing, located in Johnson City, Tennessee. Both are available for purchase at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and from Jan-Carol Publishing, Inc.
