Books with Outer Banks Roots!

There’s nothing quite as special as sinking into a beach chair with a good book and few hours. We’ve got a wide assortment of books for all ages and you’re sure to find an OBX book that suits your desires. For a little OBX history, we’ve got a handful of walking tour and guide books – the Corolla book, Hatteras book, and Nags Head book all give a history of the respective area and have specially mapped out tours for your next visit.

 If you’re looking for a book that you can relax and settle into, the OBX Store has some great OBX books to choose from. “Henry's Ghosts And Other Stories” by R. Wayne Gray is a collection of short stories set in the Outer Banks. From the same author is a journal of oral history essays covering various aspects of the Outer Banks titled “Sandbar.” We’ve also got two other by Wayne Gray – “When Ice Came to the Outer Banks” and “Windsongs from Sand Beach Creek.” 

Be sure to check out the OBX guides, Wayne Gray books, and other book descriptions by clicking on each item in our OBX bookstore. We've got great children's books too! And if you’re not sure what book to buy for a loved one, buy them a gift card and let them choose!
