Coastwalk North Carolina chronicles the journey of coastal naturalists Cathy and Peter Meyer as they walk all of North Carolina’s barrier island beaches. The Meyers trek over 425 miles, starting at the South Carolina border and finishing at the Virginia border. Enjoy the story of their hikes, along with the observations and discoveries the authors make along the way. Essays accompany their account, inspired by this journey that brings the current state of the North Carolina coast to light. Abundant color photographs and short videos supplement the text, bringing the beach environment and the treasures the authors find on the beach into even sharper focus. Journey with the Meyers, and become inspired to take your own Coastwalk of North Carolina — the book also tells you how to do just that.
