4 Goerch, Carl. Ocracoke. Drawings by Primrose.
Winston-Salem: John F. Blair, Publish, (1973). 
Octavo, white cloth (hardcover), upper cover decorated with illustration of a small boat, 223 pp. Near-Fine, in a Good, mylar protected dust jacket with edgewear and light soiling. From dust jacket: Almost legendary, the Outer Banks of North Carolina have been little known to most Americans. Now, however, our easy transportation and the swift groth of leisure time have made unspoiled and out-of-the-way vacation spots more and more scarce and more and more desirable, especially those with such a long and exciting history as that of Ocracoke Island. This strip of sand running along the North Carolina coast has, since 1585, figured in the annals of Spanish, English, and American seafarers. Blackbeard was beheaded near his Ocracocke base in 1718. Later the Islanders carried on an intermittent and involved war with Spain, and during the Revolutionary War shipping through Ocracocke Inlet to avoid British blockades elsewhere became of great importance to the American colonies. cracoke now remains a fishing and shrimping center, a small world all to itself for those hunters, fishermen and vacationers who don't demand a boardwalk with their ocean. An island family can live there comfortably on less than $100 a month, and life moves along at a calm and pleasant pace with little of the kind of excitement and worry known on the mainland. Carl Georch has written here of the many details of life on Ocracoke today. Informal and chatty, his book divulges the ways of the Islanders and of the vacationers and describes what one can expect to find and to do on the fascinating island and how one can get there. There are no policemen on Ocracoke. None are needed. News travels by a grapevine that works better than telephone or newspaper, and Coast Guard transporation to the mainland serves in lieu of a doctor...

17 Shirley, Franklin Ray. Zebulon Vance, Tarheel Spokesman.
Charlotte: McNally and Loftin, Publishers, (1962). First Edition. 
Octavo, brown cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, 161 pp. Fine; in a Very Good, mylar protected dust jacket with foxing (age darkened spotting). From dust jacket: Zebulon Baird Vance, for three terms governor of North Carolina, was the greatest orator the state has produced. His eloquence did much to make North Carolina a leader in the Confederacy during his first two terms, which coincided with the Civil War, and when he returned to the Capitol in 1876 for his third term, his public speeches helped to turn the eyes of his fellow citizens away from the sorrows of defeat and Reconstruction and toward the future. Notwithstanding his large contributions at ciritical times in the State's history and the great affection with which his fellow North Carolinians regarded him, Vance has been strangely neglected by historians and scholars...Tracing the background from which Vance came and describing the influences and experiences that sharpened his native gift for public speaking, Shirley shows how his early years led with a sort of fatal inevitability to the governorship of the State and later to the United States Senate...
