Judge Whedbee collection

When someone walks into the store and asks about a book on Outer Banks legends or ghost stories we take them directly to the Charles Harry Whedbee shelf. Whedbee was a lifelong resident of Greenville, North Carolina, and served as a district court judge for many, many years. His first love, however, was the Outer Banks and he was particularly fond of storytelling and coastal folklore. In the 1960's he hosted an early morning television show in Greenville where he frequently shared legends of the Outer Banks. Eventually he gathered some of these stories into a collection which was published by John F. Blair in 1966- Legends of the Outer Banks. This little book, with its torqoise green cover quickly became, and remains, a classic. Whedbee continued his story collecting and four more books followed. In 2004, to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of John F. Blair Publisher, a compilation of Whedbee's 'best of' was published under the title Pirates, Ghosts and Coastal Lore. Whedbee's stories- ranging from the tale of Blackbeard's 'cup' to the albino deer of Roanoke Island to St. Elmo's Fire- are entertaining and accessible to all levels of readers; we frequently suggest them to grandparents looking for that perfect Outer Banks gift for the middle school reader. HIGHLY recommended for any beach house library or the Outer Banks shelf in any home!
