Seasoned By Salt: A Historical Album of the Outer Banks
Seasoned by Salt – A Historical Album of the Outer Banks by Rodney Barfield, 27.95 (Paperback)
Rodney Barfield has assembled here more than 160 historic photographs and drawings, most of them never before published, to create a remarkable visual portrait of the Outer Banks' history and the people who lived it. Focusing especially on the nineteenth century but including some images from earlier and later periods, the book is a family album of life and work on the Banks. The photographs, accompanied by substantive captions and introductory text, document both well-known and obscure elements of the islands' past, including lighthouses, shipwrecks and rescue crews, fishing, whaling, porpoise hunting, boatbuilding, and home life.
