Asheville photographer Tim Barnwell's black-and-white pictures chronicle the traditional mountain life of western North Carolina, a way of life that has almost disappeared and persists today only in remote mountain coves. Barnwell is a native of Marshall. His project started in 1978 as a magazine assignment for the now-defunct MOUNTAIN LIVING magazine. It has continued well beyond the magazine's demise.
North Carolina possesses a diverse natural landscape from long ocean coastlines to the Piedmont and on to the mountains. It is also a state rich in flora with 3,500 species of vascular plants and 350 mosses. Some of these species are rare, partly because humans destroyed or altered their habitats or because they are an endemic species--one that grows in a very restricted range. Mansburg discusses some of these rare or endangered plants and where the grow in the state.
