Sawyer, Roy T.

America's Wetland. An Environmental and Cultural History of Tidewater Virginia and North Carolina. 2010. maps. illus. 272 p. gr8vo. Hardcover.
The geologically ancient Tidewater region of southeastern Virginia and northeastern North Carolina rests precariously atop millions of years of erosion from the nearby Appalachian Mountains. An immense wetland at near sea level, it is host to every conceivable body of fresh water, ranging from brooding swamps and large hidden lakes to sluggish blackwater rivers and brackish sounds (one of which was so large an early explorer thought he had found the Pacific Ocean). In this book the author delivers an ecohistory of this unique waterland whose wind-driven tides cover a rich human and natural past.
