XLNT book for providing quick access to North Carolina's hurricane history
This book talks about only the Great storms of the state of North Carolina, from the 1700's thru Hazel. The book refrences "Great" as being category 4 or higher at landfall or a storm that caused so much devastation that it would be considered a great storm. The book includes a few storms in the 1700's, 1800's, the 1944 storm and Hazel, and it touches on a few storms of the modern times....Very well done, each storm is well reasearched and documented!! This would be a plus for a Hurricane historian!!!!

A catalog of facts that could have been done in a table. Disjointed and dry, it reads like a high school report.
