    An accurate portrait of a wonderful place and time...

    My family owns one of the cottages in the area this author writes about, and I've been going to Nags Head since I was just a few months old. Rountree accurately captures the flavor and feeling of the area as I remember it, and as my grandparents remembered it (my grandfather first went to Nags Head in the 1930s.)The book is filled with many black and white photos from as early as 1900, and has interviews with many of the locals whose families were among the earliest settlers along the beach. There are stories told of names like the Midgett family, Rev. Drane, the Nixons, Ras Wescott, the Buchanans, the Rascoes, Carolista Baum, and of course, the cottage builder S.J. Twine.This book would be a pleasure to own for any who remember the "good old days", when families traipsed down the sand from one cottage to another for a cocktail party every night; when mothers would come to the beach with the kids for the whole summer and fathers joined them on weekends; when... 5/5 Laura Haggarty (Northern KY USA) - See all my reviews, July 26, 2001

    A combination of oral history and narrated storytelling

    0 5/5 Midwest Book Review (Oregon, WI USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Nags Headers (Hardcover) Nags Headers is a combination of oral history and narrated storytelling that opens a window to the summer lives of the families who lived and loved in the Nags Headers beach cottages. These cottages, which are now a century old, lie next to the Atlantic Ocean and are also colloquially known as the "Unpainted Aristocracy." They have survived terrible hurricanes, yet they are now threatened by the unyielding sea itself. The stories in Nags Headers capture myriad slices of history, from settlement before the Civil War, to a luncheon hosted for President Franklin Roosevelt, to modern day efforts to preserve the cottages' historical legacy. Of special interest is an interview with Virginia Hall, the 100-year-old survivor of a 1933 hurricane. Warm and picturesque, Nags Headers makes past years come alive. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 9, 2001

    Good history from the families who were there; good pix too

    0 5/5 Luke Langley (Dallas, Texas) - See all my reviews This review is from: Nags Headers (Hardcover) Great book for for getting the inside scoop from the people who were there. I enjoyed rehashing the stories from the book with my grandfather, 89, who still lives in Manteo; he first got to the OBX in the mid 1930s. I have lived on the OBX and also visited there my whole life so it was great to relate with the history and personal family narratives. I especially liked the Casino stories, and the exciting storm and war memories too. Good pictures. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 25, 2002

  • Nags Head Walking Tour and Guidebook: Then & Now


    Rating (1 reviews):

    rating because of delivery and packing.

    0 5/5 sharon pilch (NORTH MIAMI, FL, US) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Nags Head Walking Tour and Guidebook: Then & Now (Paperback) Spend a lot of time in OBX and thought this would make a great read and day adventure. It came right before we were leaving our home so I left it among our books for future trip. Our house rents out during the summer and we generally have very thoughtful guests. Evidently, one thought it would make a great souvineer I never did get to read or walk the tour. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 21, 2012

    Good little book with lots of information about Nags Head ...

    0 4/5 anonymous - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Old Nag's Head (Paperback) Good little book with lots of information about Nags Head from about 1880 until well into the 1920s, and some before and after that. Fills a definite void in Outer Banks history. Decently written, as well, with Outlaw's personal story intertwined with local history. However -- and it's a BIG however -- this is by far the worst organized book I've ever read and I've read many local history books. Simply chaotic.With a good editor, or even with text moved around, this would have been a 5-star. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 27, 2014
