Voices from the Outer Banks presents the actual words of the people who lived the uncommonly rich history of this chain of barrier islands stretching from the Virginia border southward through Cape Lookout. Readers will enjoy contemporary accounts of the first British settlement in North America and the birth of the first English child on American soil. They’ll read 18th-century letters, articles, and poems about the bloody death of Blackbeard, arguably the most famous of all the pirates. They’ll read the news account of the first powered airplane flights in human history. And the editorial that created America’s first national seashore. And the words of family members who once inhabited the nation’s most iconic lighthouse—part of a matched set of four. Topics include “the Graveyard of the Atlantic,” in a nod to the rough waters that over the centuries have claimed hundreds of vessels, and “Torpedo Junction,” site of “the Great American Turkey Shoot,” the latter nickname bestowed by German submariners during World War II. The volume includes first-person accounts of Civil War battles, a freedmen’s colony, hunt clubs that drew the first wealthy tourists, and lifesavers who used horses to pull surfboats to the water and fired lines by cannon to wrecked vessels. Readers will even hear contemporary stories of the Boy Scout troop that rode ponies descended from ancient shipwrecked animals.

This is the story of Mark Carter, a fifth-grader, whose family lives in Atlanta, Georgia. Mark has an obsessive fascination with ghosts, and looks forward to his family’s summer vacations on the Outerbanks of North Carolina each summer to visit his favorite relatives, his grandparents. But this year will be special because Mark will be ten years old, and will be able to spend the summer alone with his grandparents. While at his grandparents house, Mark is introduced to the area’s local legend of the sightings on the high sand dunes of Jockey’s Ridge, which plays an important role in young Mark’s fertile imagination. According to local legend, the sightings are of the ‘poor souls’ who perished on the ships wrecked on the shoals off Cape Hatteras. Mark befriends an older boy, and together, they share many adventures, including a confrontation with “The Ghost of the Dunes.”
