Two of our favorite Roanoke Islanders are back with another terrific book on Outer Banks history! Wayne & Nancy Gray have just released Commercial Fishing on the Outer Banks- a thoroughly researched, well-written tome on the history and importance of the industry to our area- illustrated with over 200 archival photographs. Locals and visitors alike will agree this is a 'must have' for anyone with a love for the Outer Banks.
