The Coastal Chronicles Vol. II
In The Coastal Chronicles Volume I, lovers of Cape Fear and coastal North Carolina history were treated to a collection of true, factually accurate stories that entertained as well as educated and informed. In this latest volume, that tradition continues. The Coastal Chronicles Volume II offers up true tales of Blackbeard the Pirate, King Hancock and North Carolina’s most vicious Indian War, plus biographical sketches of home-grown heroes and a lady heroine from the Highlands of Scotland. There are stories here about the British invasion of Beaufort, the African Prince who served a governor, and the sleek blockade runners that braved the Yankee fleet. These stories and more make this second volume in the Coastal Chronicles series a must-have edition for locals, newcomers, and tourists alike.
