ByFranz X. BognerAndrew N Ash

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
The Lumber River is a blackwater coastal stream found in southeastern North Carolina. It meanders through five North Carolina counties on its way to its junction with the Little Pee Dee River in South Carolina. Along its one-hundred-and-thirty-mile course, its exceptionally high quality water flows unimpeded while providing a natural habitat for plants, animals, and people. In a collaborative effort, science educator and photographer Franz Bogner and ecologist Andrew Ash tell the fascinating story of the history and ecological challenges of the Lumber River region. While tracing the geography of the river’s watershed as well as its rich cultural history that includes Native Americans, European settlers, African slaves, and modern inhabitants, Bogner and Ash describe the life that relies on the river’s ecosystem, disclose potential threats, and share interesting facts. Incorporated within the text are captivating photographs that reveal the river’s beauty and diverse occupants that call it home. .
