Cruise across mountain peaks and sandy shores. Travel to storied landmarks and enchanting sights.  Road Trip Carolina is certain to spark wanderlust in the young explorer and cherished memories in those who already know and love North Carolina.  

The book travels across the state through four distinctly wonderful seasons, stops in to visit legendary state sites - like Grandfather Mountain and Biltmore from the Blue Ridge Parkway - through the Piedmont and Sandhills and on to the beach to "bury toes in silky sand" and fly kites at the Wright Brothers Memorial.  Energetic, rhythmic, playful and educational, words and illustrations capture the heart and intrigue of this rich and diverse state.

This book is the second collaboration between Missy Julian Fox and Elaine O’Neil.  Their first book, Goodnight Carolina, is a love letter to Carolina and Chapel Hill.

About

The Author

MISSY JULIAN FOX, a born and bred North Carolinian, lives in her hometown of Chapel Hill.  Her elementary school dreams were to be a mom, a teacher and a writer.  Earning a B.A. degree in English from Carolina and a M.Ed. from Boston University, Missy served as a Title I reading teacher, forging a commitment to children, education and access that continues to be a lifelong passion.  She literally grew up in her parents’ legendary clothing store, Julian’s, on Franklin Street.  She managed the business for 15 years as she raised her family and advocated for downtown and her community.  Currently, Missy works as Director of UNC Visitors’ Center, connecting people to the University’s history, charm and impact to the town, the state and beyond. 

The Illustrator

ELAINE O’NEIL lives in Hillsborough, NC, the great-granddaughter of a Maine lighthouse keeper, granddaughter of a farmer and daughter of an ardent seamstress.   She has been re-creating the places we love in North Carolina with her unique textile collage art for over a decade.  Instead of using paint, she creates each image using a myriad of fabric colors and textures, all painstakingly sewn together, to evoke a sense of place and connection with wonderful memories.  She graduated from Philadelphia College of Textiles and Science, earning a B.S. degree in textile design. Her work is featured in galleries and shops across North Carolina and the USA.  The North Carolina Cancer Hospital displays a collection of her art to inspire and honor patients from all 100 counties in the state. www.elaineoneil.com
