. A love letter from native eastern North Carolinian Nancy Rascoe to her beloved Outer Banks. Nancy's family has long owned one of the oldest homes in Nags Head's historic Cottage Row. A lifelong labor of love, Nancy described the work in her own words: "It has long been my heart's desire to pass down to you a history of Old Nags Head and its neighboring villages so that you can share in the lives of the special folks who first came to 'the Banks' and hear them tell with such gratitude and true pride of their ancestors who fished the sea, rescued those in distress, farmed the land and pioneered this island for you and for me to enjoy." Nancy collected over 300 pages of anecdotes, memories, pictures and writings from many of the original Cottage Row families and put them together in this truly unique, and collectible, book. Out of print for several years, a small quantity of The Sandy Banks Live On was recently re-published by her family.
