Description


Nestled within North Carolina's Outer Banks lies Currituck County, a gem to both residents and tourists alike. Prolific local author Travis Morris pays tribute to this close-knit community with personal anecdotes and interviews of lifetime residents, from those who danced at Nags Head Casino (which allegedly had the East Coast's largest dance floor in the 1940s and '50s) to those who hunted fowl at the Wright Brothers Hunting Lodge. Stories of old Currituck will resonate with anyone who remembers feather beds, kerosene lamps and families crowded around the first battery radios to listen to the Grand Ole Opry. Glimpse potato hills"--used to store sweet potatoes in the winter--the muddy roads of Dismal Swamp, fishermen bartering oysters for corn and other larger-than-life characters in this collection of stories about Currituck's early years."
