Hatteras Blues: A Story from the Edge of America By Tom Carlson
Publisher: The University of North Carolina Press 2008 | 272 Pages | ISBN: 0807829757 | File type: PDF | 3 mb

The quot;bluesquot; in this book's title refers both to blue-water fishingfor blue marlin, striped bass, and other deep-sea fishand to the blues that come from personal loss. Carlson wrote this memoir to help him deal with grief over his wife's death and to celebrate the fishermen of the Outer Banks in North Carolina, a resilient but besieged community, constantly at risk from real-estate development and the hazards of life on the water. The text weaves together information about the history of the Outer Banks and the fishing there as well as such related topics as geology, hurricanes, lifesaving, and lighthouses. He focuses on the Fosters of the village of Hatteras, whose patriarch, Ernal, introduced many of the inventions and innovations that make the Outer Banks a popular fishing destination. His sketches of the Fosters and others capture the wit, character, and bravery of Hatteras people in a manner that is intimate and insightful without being intrusive.
