Hatteras Island: Keeper of the Outer Bank By Ray McAllister

(00:49:28)

On July 23, 2009, Ray McAllister delivered a Banner Lecture entitled “Hatteras Island: Keeper of the Outer Banks.” The Outer Banks have enticed Virginians with the lure of sun, sky, and sea for generations. Despite this idyllic appeal, these once-isolated barrier islands have also witnessed a turbulent past. Pirates, hurricanes, shipwrecks, and U-boats all make their appearance in the varied story of the Outer Banks. Ray McAllister, an award-winning former Richmond Times-Dispatch columnist, has become the established chronicler of coastal North Carolina with his latest volume on Hatteras, which follows earlier books on Wrightsville Beach and Topsail Island.
