Books Info:

Little Rivers and Waterway Tales free pdf Bland Simpson regales us with new tales of the region's "water-loving land", revealing how its creeks, streams, and rivers shape the region's geography as well as its culture. Drawing on their deep family ties and coastal travels, he and wife and collaborator Ann Cary Simpson tell the stories of those who have lived and worked in this country, chronicling both a distinct environment and way of life. Whether rhapsodizing about learning to sail on the Pasquotank River or eating oysters on Ocracoke, he introduces readers to the people and communities along the watery web of myriad "little rivers" that define North Carolina's sound country as it meets the Atlantic. With nearly sixty of Ann Simpson's photographs, Little Rivers joins the Simpsons' two previous works, Into the Sound Country and The Inner Islands , in offering a rich narrative and visual documentation of eastern North Carolina's particular beauty. Urging readers to take note of the poetry in "every rivulet and rill, every creek, crick, branch, run, stream, prong, fork, river, pocosin, swamp, basin, estuary, cove, bay, and sound", the Simpsons show how the coastal plain's river systems are in many ways the region's heart and soul.
