"This is a wonderful work of geography, history, and--for those who lived through some of these storms--maybe even a bit of nostalgia."--Durham Herald Sun
"[This book] remains the only comprehensive history of hurricanes in the Tar Heel State, from the great storm of 1586. [This edition] adds the storms of the new millennium, including a long discussion of superstorm Sandy, which skirted our coast only to pound New York State and New Jersey."--Wilmington Star News
