Distant Horizons

by Gian Quasar, Distant Horizons Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Distant Horizons books, Truth is stranger than fiction, it is said. If so then Distant Horizons presents some of the strangest sea mysteries of all time. For it is not the product of uncritically passing along tales of the sea. It is the result of decades of research. The stories in this compendium are true, often presented with meticulous detail. Sometimes this explodes myth. Sometimes the facts reveal myth to be anemic by comparison. Famous ghost ships like the Mary Celeste and the Carroll A. Deering have become literary formula and economic rehash. But what are the actual facts? Thousands of derelicts once peppered the North Atlantic, but these two mystery ships have stood the test of time. What is really so unique about them? The Bermuda Triangle has earned its infamous reputation, but is it really to blame for some of its most famous victims? Did the Marine Sulphur Queen truly even vanish in the Triangle? What about the USS Cyclops? Could it truly be the American version of the HMS Bounty?

An Outer Banks Reader

by David Stick, An Outer Banks Reader Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download An Outer Banks Reader books, For half a century, David Stick has been writing books about the fragile chain of barrier islands off the North Carolina coast known as the Outer Banks. Two of his earliest, Graveyard of the Atlantic and The Outer Banks of North Carolina, were published by the UNC Press in the 1950s, and continue to be best-sellers. More recently, Stick embarked on another project, searching for the most captivating and best-written examples of what others have said about his beloved Outer Banks. In the process, more than 1,000 books, pamphlets, periodicals, historical documents, and other writings were reviewed. The result is a rich and fascinating anthology. The selections in An Outer Banks Reader span the course of more than four and a half centuries, from the first known record of a meeting between Europeans and Native Americans in the region in 1524 to modern-day accounts of life on the Outer Banks. Together, Stick hopes, the sixty-four entries may provide both "outlanders" and natives with an understanding of why the Outer Banks are home to a rapidly growing number of people who would rather spend the rest of their lives there than any place else on earth.

Hatteras Blues

by Tom Carlson, Hatteras Blues Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Hatteras Blues books, 'Carlson's first-person narrative about the sportfishing trade and its relationship with the commercial fishing operations at Hatteras Island focuses closely on a relatively small group of people in the village whom we get to know quite well and, in the process, come to care for and admire. All sorts of folks will be drawn to this book, some for its close-in look at fishing, others for its fond, vivid portraiture of the last of the real salts.'' Bland Simpson, author of Ghost Ship of Diamond Shoals: The Mystery of the Carroll A. Deering ''This book is filled with stories and history and the poignant flavor of a vanishing way of life. Tom Carlson couldn't have picked a better subject to introduce his readers to the real Outer Banks.'' Jan DeBlieu, author of Wind: How the Flow of Air Has Shaped Life, Myth, and the Land ''If you enjoy reading about the sea and the men who work on it, Hatteras Blues will be a delight.''David DiBenedetto, editor of Salt Water Sportsman and author of On the Run: An Angler's Journey down the Striper Coast
