Back cover copy

Outer Banks on My Mind celebrates the wonder of this unique piece of the American landscape. Within these pages, the sights, sounds, and smells of the Atlantic Ocean permeate throughout more than 120 stunning photographs. The words of visitors and residents inspired by this lovely, narrow strip of land - Walter Cronkite, Sydney Lanier, Anne Morrow Lindbergh, and others - further fill the senses with the beauty of this place. From the striking Hatteras Light to weather-worn town buildings, this book is filled with landmarks. But these pages also lead to hidden, unforgettable, quiet spots on this narrow strip of land, retreats especially valued on this busy island in summer, when heat- and city-weary visitors fill the air with an excited buzz. 'Peaceful' and 'exquisite' describes the winter months at this far eastern outpost - a time when locals gather strength from their surroundings and prepare for another year of living close to nature, close to water, practically part of the ocean. This book is a perfect keepsake of this lovely, memorable place. (10 X 12 1/4, 100 pages, color photos)show more
