America's Wetland


One of our members has a new book out. Roy T. Sawyer has a book just published under the title America's Wetland. It ranges over the Va/NC wetlands system and centers on the Tyrrell/ Hyde peninsula. I have been enjoying my copy and can highly recommend it. Its almost like talking to Roy - but not quite as much fun as having a nice chat with him.

If you thought you knew the Albemarle you just might be in for a few surprises!
