With "The Nature of North Carolina's Southern Coast," Dirk
Frankenberg's effort to provide a comprehensive field guide to the
state's dynamic shoreline is complete. Picking up where his 1995
book "The Nature of the Outer Banks" left off, this book covers the
coastal region from Ocracoke Inlet to the South Carolina border.
Along the way, it provides a close-up look at the area's natural
environment, highlighting the processes that have shaped, and
continue to shape, North Carolina's southern coast.
The book guides the reader to more than fifty different natural
areas--including barrier islands, coastal waters, estuaries,
wetlands, and forests--that have been preserved along 180 miles of
coastline. Drawings, maps, and photographs amplify the text, aid in
identifying common plants, and illustrate the local natural
communities. In a final section, the author explores the effects of
human land use on coastal areas, calling attention to a number of
current environmental threats and discussing ways in which these
issues might be addressed. Informative and useful, this book will
aid and encourage the responsible exploration and enjoyment of
North Carolina's coastal environment.
