Wild North Carolina
Celebrating the beauty and diversity of the state’s natural landscapes, this new book provides an illustrated introduction to North Carolina’s interconnected plant and animal life. From dunes and marshes to high mountain crags, through forests, swamps, savannas, ponds, pocosins and flatrocks, North Carolinians David Blevins and Michael Schafale reveal in words and photographs natural patterns that help readers see familiar places in a new way and also view new places with a sense of familiarity. “Wild North Carolina” introduces the full range of the state’s diverse natural communities through color illustrations, accounts of significance and details on where to go to experience the communities first hand. Blevins is a nature photographer and forest ecologist, and Schafale is a community ecologist. Hardback, 184 pages, $30.
