Some of the stories were quite interesting but some of it just sounded like a list of names and numbers.

I really enjoyed this book, which is a history of shipwrecks off the NC coast pretty much since they've been recorded. The author does a great job of creating narrative in some places, but just recounts facts in others. There is a nice since of progression though, looking at how lifesaving techniques, sailing trends and other things affected life on the Outer Banks and for those sailing alongside.

Just the kind of book to read on a rainy day looking out over a leaden sea and just loving being at the beach. This boot really catches the flair and the life and death struggle that occurred off the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Dr. Stick has done an excellent job in putting these stories together... Very good read!
