Editorial Reviews

Review

"An astonishing array of images. . . . An aesthetic and archival portfolio, "Hugh Morton: North Carolina Photographer" is a look through the eyes of a talented and timeless Tar Heel at some of the best scenes of both nature and man that our state has to offer."
-- "Our State"

Review

Thanks to these wonderful photographs, Hugh Morton's name will be a familiar one for many generations of people who love North Carolina.--Jancey Common Times Journal



From the Mile High Swinging Bridge on Grandfather Mountain to the magnificent Bonner Bridge at Oregon Inlet, Hugh Morton's. . . book reminds us yet again of his remarkable life and countless contributions to the state of North Carolina--Transylvania Times



Hugh Morton loved birds and animals, especially bear cubs and their mischievousness. You will see squirrel, deer, mountain lion, opossum, and the majestic American eagle. He made each of us a companion in his personal discovery and enjoyment of the great natural endowment of which we are trustees.--William Friday, from the Foreword



An astonishing array of images. . . . An aesthetic and archival portfolio, Hugh Morton: North Carolina Photographer, is a look through the eyes of a talented and timeless Tar Heel at some of the best scenes of both nature and man that our state has to offer.--Our State



In more than six decades of traversing the state with his battered Nikon F, Morton shot tens of thousands of photographs. . . . [His] photos form a portrait of North Carolina as he wanted the world to see it.--Raleigh News & Observer



There was only one Hugh Morton. He was truly one of North Carolina's treasures and nobody has done more to promote North Carolina's natural heritage than he has. . . . If there were ever to be a Mr. North Carolina, it would be Hugh Morton.--Gov. Mike Easley, 2 June 2006



Until his death this year, Morton bedazzled North Carolinians with photographs capturing the state's natural beauty and culture. . . . The new collection features some of Morton's finest outdoor and nature shots, from the beaches in the East to the Western mountains.--News & Observer (Raleigh, NC)



Morton's photos made us think about North Carolina's treasures as well as its needs and made us ponder how to fix what's wrong and how to preserve what's good. He did it in that quiet way of his, the same way he took good pictures.--The Charlotte Observer



What the world knows about Wilmington is mostly what Hugh Morton wanted the world to know. What he learned about promoting Wilmington, he used to promote North Carolina. . . . Other Wilmingtonians have done great things for their city. None has done more to make it known. We'll miss Hugh Morton. But the photographs he left behind are reminders not only of special places and special times, but of a special life, well lived.--Wilmington Star-News



Hugh Morton: North Carolina Photographer is a wonderful book full of photographs and would make a great gift. . . for either the native Tar Heel resident, or one whose ancestors called North Carolina home.--Avery Journal Times



This volume will make a nice gift from both natives and newcomers--Pilot



[Hugh Morton: North Carolina Photographer] is one of the few 'must haves' for any Tar Heel.--Chapel Hill News

I bought this book for my father, who is from the mountains of North Carolina and spent the last 20 years as a professional photographer. He was thrilled with it. The pictures are beautiful and you truly get a sense that Hugh Morton was a man who loved his state.
