Cape Hatteras National Seashore
Adventure, Explore, DiscoverBook - 2008
Tales of Blackbeard the pirate and hundreds of shipwrecks near Cape Hatteras are only part of the rich history of America's first national seashore park. Curious readers can learn how the three barrier islands known as the Outer Banks of North Carolina were first formed, what lightships were, and why the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse had to be moved almost 3,000 feet from its original location. From bubble holes to barking sand, the park's unique natural features and related conservation efforts are all detailed here.
