Jim's book "Orchids, Carnivorous Plants, and Other Wildflowers of the Green Swamp, North Carolina" is not just a field guide to the flora of the Green Swamp Preserve and the Greater Green Swamp area, but an introduction to the history of this wonderful biologically diverse region. He answers the question what is the Green Swamp, describes in detail the characteristics that make it unique, talks about how fire is critical to the diversity of longleaf pine savannas, and current pressures that effect the future of the preserve.
