Painfully remote in the time of the Wright brothers, today the Outer Banks famously welcomes millions of visitors each year. The journey from early isolation to popularity is recalled with remarkable insight by Ernie Bowden, a sixth-generation Outer Banker. On any given day, Ernie was a sailor, cattle baron, salvage specialist, hunter, fisherman, legal expert and elected official all at once. Born just after the end of World War I, his memories stretch from the isolation of the early twentieth century through the glamor of the world-famous duck clubs of the area and the storms that have shaped its modern-day geography. Aided by author Clark Twiddy, Ernie tells the tales of a unique life spent in this unique place.
