NC's Outer Banks

Summertime is coming!  Last week, the focus was on the Blue Ridge Parkway to the west.  Now let's go to the eastern area of the state, specifically the Outer Banks.  These "Outer Banks" are actually 130 miles of barrier islands located just off of the North Carolina coast.  The NC Literary Map has several titles pertaining to this highly popular region of our state.

One of these books is entitled "On This Day in Outer Banks History" by Sarah Downing.  The Outer Banks has a fascinating history dating all the way back to the days of Blackbeard and 18th century pirates.  From the Wright Brothers' inaugural flight in 1903 to modern-day tourism, one can always learn more about this region's exciting past.  Check it out at your local library or bookstore!  Happy reading (and traveling)!
