The Outer Banks of North Carolina attract those with a conviction to dream and do. Explorers, pirates, lifesavers and the world’s first pilots decorate the halls of local history. Some of the Outer Banks’ greatest accomplishments are due to daring women who pushed the odds. Eleanor Dare created a new life amid a doomed colonial expedition, Chrissy Bowser found her freedom as the Civil War rocked Roanoke Island and Irene Tate watched the Wright brothers assemble their glider in her front yard and then went on to become a record-setting pilot herself. The women in this book fought for their home. They stepped outside the traditional roles of their day and age, seeking to preserve the area’s history and heritage. They saved sand dunes and moved lighthouses. Local author Hannah Bunn West tells their stories.
