There is a sliver of sand that extends itself into the sea beyond the usual coastline of North Carolina. Rich in pirate lore, ghost stories, r'easters, and unpredictable weather, the Outer Banks continues to leave an indelible impression on those who are receptive. A reflection of three generations in the changing landscape of the North Carolina Outer Banks, Coming Home takes readers back to the more incent era of the 1920s and 1930s, followed by accounts of the legendary Casi, the shifting sand of Jockey's Ridge, and other memories too good to lose from the 1950s and '60s. This reflection comes full circle with stories from vacationers who 'wrote' parts of this ode to the Outer Banks through their own real-life experiences. Author Sally Nixon Haines invites readers to see this place as locals do, offering insider information, travel tips, and amusing anecdotes-all sprinkled with a hearty dose of humor and stalgia. Whether you're a native to the area, a frequent visitor, or a tourist in the making, you'll enjoy Coming Home: The North Carolina Outer Banks, which urges you to discover the beauty that remains...and don't forget to pack the memories when you leave.
