In his new book, Shipwrecks of the Outer Banks, author James D Charlet explores the stories of daring rescues, tragic failures, enduring mysteries, buried treasure and fascinating legends of so many ships that fell victim to our treacherous coastline. James taught North Carolina history for 24 years, has worked with the Wright Brothers National Memorial, the Chicamacomico Life-Saving Station Historic Site, leads tours, educational programs and contributes to local and national media with his articles on nautical history and the Outer Banks. James knows his subject well as is evident by the wealth of information, knowledge and passion on display in his book.
