Even if you aren't from here you will enjoy. This is a television show that we enjoy and the books are from the history, sites, taste and smells of North Carolina. Read morePublished 15 days ago by Sandra J. Long
Another NC book that disappointed. Seemed more of a vehicle for the author's love of natural photography than a well rounded guide of things to do.Published 26 days ago by Fiona Jones

Good pictures, little information when you consider all the possibilities. Limited in its scope as far as I'm concerned. It sits on my bookshelfPublished 9 months ago by Quetico
I bought two of these as gifts. One for my brother and one for my son-in-law. They both like to take the roads less traveled. Hope they find them informative.Published 12 months ago by Geesreview
