Dennis Rogers is first of all a storyteller, in the best sense of the word. His columns for The News and Observer capture the spirit and rhythms of the people and places of North Carolina, tickling your funny bone one day, evoking sentiment the next.
Second Harvest is his second collection of columns. It's about folks like Uncle Josh Hendricks, a Person County coon hunter, and Lynn Dudia, a friend to the terminally ill in Chapel Hill. It's about Snow Hill on a quiet day in August and Rodanthe on a cold night in January.

Second Harvest is his second collection of columns. It's about folks like Uncle Josh Hendricks, a Person County coon hunter, and Lynn Dudka, a friend to the terminally ill in Chapel Hill. It's about Snow Hill on a quiet day in August and Rodanthe on a cold night in January.

There are stories of men who fought for their country but never considered themselves heroes, of a Confederate general who wept at the grave of his beloved daughter, of a warm Thanksgiving meal in Korea for a soldier far from home.
And we learn something about our past, about how love, prayer and hangings shaped our history. But Rogers is more than a storyteller. He is an observer of man and his times, of the predicaments of everyday living, of jogging, cowboy dress and the evils of electric hand dryers.

Dennis Rogers' world is filled with possums and barbecue, Lady Diana and the Hadnot Creek Primitive Baptist Church. Second Harvest brings them all together.
