The Workboats of Core Sound

The Workboats of Core Sound

"Stories and Photographs of a Changing World," written and photographed by Lawrence S. Earley. Along the wide waters of eastern North Carolina, the people of many scattered villages separated by creeks, marshes and rivers depend on shallow-water boats, both for their livelihoods as fishermen and to maintain connections with one another and the rest of the world. The rich history of these hand-built wooden fishing boats, the people who work them, and the communities they serve lies at the heart of this evocative book of essays, interviews, and photographs. 176 pages, 109 photos, $35. Also available as an e-book.
