The Ballad of Tom Dooley
A Ballad NovelAudiobook CD - 2011
The folk songs recounts a tragedy in the North Carolina mountains after the Civil War. Laura Foster, a simple country girl, was murdered and her lover Tom Dula was hanged for the crime. With the help of historians, lawyers, and researchers, Sharyn McCrumb visited the actual sites, studied the legal evidence and uncovered a missing piece of the story that will shock those who think they already know what happened, and may also bring belated justice to an innocent man.
