Bald Head Island The Early YearsRegular price $21.99
Immerse yourself in the equally entertaining and inspiring true stories of the people who stewarded the transition of Bald Head Island from an isolated barrier island into a relaxing destination oasis - one appreciated today by visitors from around the world.
This important collection of firsthand narratives introduces readers to little-known, and sometimes never before told, stories of Bald Head Island's earliest residents.
Here, in their own words, the Generation Society of the 1970s and the Outriggers of the 1980s share the memories, mishaps, and merriment of creating a close-knit, laid-back community amid windswept dunes and lush maritime forest.
Despite an abundance of challenges - transportation tribulations, lack of electricity, mischievous wildlife, developer woes, and more - these families relied on hard work, camaraderie, and creativity to survive and thrive. And throughout it all, the conservation and preservation of the island's unique natural habitat became their rallying cry.
