1274. Salter, Ben B. Portsmouth Island – Short Stories and History. 1972.

1274. Salter, Ben B. Portsmouth Island – Short Stories and History. 1972. Softcover, 80 pages. Illustrated. Portsmouth Island stands as a reminder that some wild places cannot be tamed. Contained within the sandy borders of Portsmouth Island, North Carolina, lies Portsmouth village, a 250-acre hamlet once known to be a bustling Southern Outer Banks settlement bordered by precious, undisturbed beaches. This an easy read about simple times in this once bustling fishing village. Anyone who has ever visited our nation’s outer beaches can appreciate these tales. The stories recount the history of the island and some of it’s inhabitants before the last resident moved off the island and before the National Park Service took it over in the 70’s. Includes chapters on the Life-Saving / Coast Guard station, shipwrecks off the island, caught in a storm, life on the island and more. Great accounts for those who long to escape the hustle and bustle of contemporary life. Clean, tight. Difficult to find. (VG+). $26.
