Overview
-

An eloquent record of island life off the coast of Virginia a century ago, when hunters and watermen harvested the riches in marsh and shoal and sportsmen came to fish the sea and relax on the beaches. This handsome book captures the spirit of those days. Curtis Badger and Rich Kellam conducted exhaustive research, interviewed descendants of old islanders, and collected over 300 photographs to tell the story of the generations who lived, worked, and played on the Barrier Islands.The most complete history of life on the Barrier Islands Filled with vintage photographs
