"In this richly illustrated love letter to the wild places and natural wonders of North Carolina, Tom Earnhardt, writer and host of UNC-TV's 'Exploring North Carolina' and lifelong conservationist, seamlessly ties deep geological time and forgotten species from our distant past to the unparalleled biodiversity of today. With varied topography and a climate that is simultaneously subtropical, temperate, and subarctic, he shows that North Carolina is a meeting place for living things more commonly found far to the north and south. Highlighting the ways in which the state is a unique ecological crossroads, Earnhardt's research, insightful writing, and stunning photography will both teach and inspire".
Bleeder - Shelby Smoak
Publisher: Michigan State University Press
Check Library Catalog Pub Date: 02/01/2013
Share Bleeder ISBN-13: 9781611860696
ISBN-10: 1611860695
When he turned 18 in his senior year of high school, Smoak's parents and doctors told him he had tested HIV-positive several years earlier, the result of a blood transfusion administered to treat his hemophilia. This remarkable first book from Smoak, an English teacher and writer, begins during his final year of high school in rural North Carolina. The narrative follows his student days at the University of North Carolina, Wilmington, and several years beyond. Unlike most HIV-inspired memoirs, this one is also a coming-of-age story, one that describes a transition that was sometimes excruciatingly difficult owing to Smoak's HIV and hemophilia.
Down the wild Cape Fear : a river journey through the heart of North Carolina - Philip Gerard
Publisher: The University of North Carolina Press
Check Library Catalog Pub Date: 03/04/2013
Share Down the wild Cape Fear %3a  a river journey through the heart of North Carolina ISBN-13: 9781469602073
ISBN-10: 1469602075
Beginning in central North Carolina, the Cape Fear River flows 200 miles to the Atlantic Ocean, creating habitat for a wide variety of wildlife and at one time serving as a commercial thoroughfare for the communities along its banks. Gerard weaves the history of the Cape Fear River watershed with modern environmental concerns and his own experiences of the river. Much of the book focuses on the Wilmington area's history and current threats to the health of the river and the people, plants, and animals who live near it. The controversial revival of a cement plant upstream and plans for a new port downstream are presented from an environmental impact perspective founded in the author's obvious love of the area and his desire for it to thrive.
