“Bland Simpson’s new book, North Carolina: Land of Water, Land of Sky is stuffed full of color photographs of sights across North Carolina taken by Simpson’s wife, Ann Cary Simpson, professional photographer Scott Taylor, and naturalist Tom Earnhardt,” writes D.G. Martin in this column. “The lovely photos supplement the book’s main attraction, a trip across North Carolina led by a master communicator who is thoroughly familiar with and deeply in love with his subject.”

Simpson is Kenan Distinguished Professor of Creative Writing.
