A River of the People

Welcome to Yadkin River Story, a multimedia project about the people who have made the river a part of their lives. The Yadkin has its source beside a resort hotel in Blowing Rock, N.C., then flows east for nearly 100 miles before turning south at the East Bend. This project focuses on the region near the East Bend and tells the river’s human story—of fishermen and farmers, immigrants and worshippers, mothers and sons—of people whose lives are defined one way or another by the river. Their stories are meant to be seen and heard. We hope the river speaks to you as it has to us.
