The Inland Sea

Record #:
Lake Norman is, at thirrty-three miles long, nine miles wide, and, in spots, one hundred and ten feet deep, the largest man-made body of fresh water in the state. Its original purpose was to provide fresh water, flood control, and electricity for the region. Campbell recounts what has happened to the lake and the region it serves over the past fifty years and describes what was covered by its waters when it filled.
