The Coasts of Carolina captures the vibrancy of the North Carolina oceanfront, sound country, and interior shores behind the barrier islands. Scott Taylor, who has been photographing the coast for almost thirty years, and Bland Simpson, whose many coastal books have delighted readers for two decades, come together to offer an inviting visual and textual portrait organized around coastal themes such as nature, fishing, and community life, with an emphasis on particular places and seasons. Evocative text is woven together with 145 vivid color images to present a unique and welcoming vision of the coastal region. As natives of the area, the collaborators venture beyond the familiar to show us swamp, marsh, river, sound, and seashore, uncovering places of uncommon delight that most visitors rarely lay eyes on. Their work celebrates the beauty of this amazing region and embodies their distinctive sense of what makes the North Carolina coast so special.

A delight for anyone visiting the Outer Banks or wishing to remember time spent there.--Library Journal


Gorgeous. . . . Simpson writes as he travels, employing long, leisurely, meandering sentences and a pleasantly antique vocabulary. . . . And Taylor's images--from St. James churchyard at night to a row of live oaks at Orton--recall moments of discovery that stick in our hearts forever.--Ben Steelman, Wilmington Star-News


Simpson and Taylor create a lasting sense of place and community that piques the interests of distant travelers and allows residents to revel in remembrance--Our State


Goes beyond the familiar territories to uncover swamp, marsh, river, sound and seashore that visitors and even locals often miss.--Jacksonville Daily News


Might inspire readers to visit parts of North Carolina they've never seen, or to sit back and let the authors do the traveling. . . . A lovingly rendered portrait of a unique part of the state.--Raleigh News & Observer


Captures the vibrancy of the North Carolina oceanfront, sound country, and interior shores behind the barrier islands. . . . An inviting visual and textual portrait organized around coastal themes.--Carolina Country


In [Simpson's] narrative readers will discover a deeply moving story that is understood in the context of the history of a place. . . .
