In a time when water is poised to become the oil of the 21st century, The River’s Edge explores the vernacular landscape of the Lower Neuse River Basin, a complex relationship between the river and man. Weaving through seven North Carolina counties, the Neuse River begins its journey in the Piedmont in the West, and ends it in the Pamlico Sound in the East.  Although under increasing environmental pressure, there is still a beauty that flows with the Neuse, a quiet strength and resilience that feeds both the spirit of the land and the people of this region of Eastern North Carolina.
