The Ferries of North Carolina:

Traveling the State's Nautical Highways


200 pages; $9.95


Part travel journal, part travel guide, The Ferries of North Carolina is the first comprehensive guide to all the state's passenger and vehicle ferries--public and private--covering waterways from Cape Fear to Currituck Sound. Each of the state's 17 coastal and river routes is described in detail, including directions to landings, schedule and fare information, a guide to shore facilities and nearby attractions, and interviews, anecdotes, and observations based on years of firsthand experience.


Creating the book involved five years of traveling the ferry routes, interviewing crews and passengers, and visiting far-flung destinations. After compiling and editing the text and timetables, the text was enhanced with custom maps and more than 100 photos.
