"From Blackbeard's den at Ocracoke, to the Hills of the Seven Sisters at Nag's Head, to the misty swamps of Shallotte, there is hardly an inch of territory along North Carolina's coast without a legend attached to it. Inlanders may be skeptical regarding the sometimes miraculous, often horror-filled tales that make up the coastal folklore, but Outer Bankers accept the incredible as fact. The phenomena of the Outer Banks range from phosphorescent lights appearing and disappearing over Pamlico Sound to the strange fate of a crewless ship marooned on deadly Diamond Shoals. Legendary heroes such as Captain Jim Baum Gaskill are often truly heroic - or they may be scurrilous, like old Quork and Blackbeard. But they all loom larger than life with deeds and personalities unique to coastal Carolina."; 7" - 9" Tall; Signed by Author
