y the old voices and the old ways. Bears away what we loved, and what we realize, too late, we still desperately need. This book’s a bridge to that past. In a series of interviews conducted in the late 1970's and early 1980's, eight elderly people recount their lives on a string of isolated islands off the North Carolina coast...The Outer Banks.

Now, near the ends of their voyages, they linger for a little while to tell us of The Way Things Were. And they'll tell us more -- if we’ll listen. With a little urging, they'll share their thoughts on the ultimate questions; good and evil, youth and age, triumph and suffering. From the first word, they cast a spell.
