The Adventures of the Lighthouse Kids

Far more than just a book for kids, the Lighthouse Kids series is a fantastic way to experience the history of Hatteras Island through the adventures of the grandchildren of the lighthouse keeper. From the Barnes and Noble website:

“Living in the shadow of the mighty Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, miles from the village, Ellie, Luke, and Blake exist in a world of spirits, mystical wolves, and stories told by their grandfather, the keeper of the lighthouse. In this five-volume series, the three children of the Jennette family travel back in time to discover the origin of their ancestors and the events that shaped the civilization of Cape Hatteras Island. Throughout the series, islanders live as they did when only an occasional mail boat kept them connected to the rest of the world—before a bridge linked the island to the mainland and before tourists flocked to the area during the summer season. Isolated from others, they created a life of comfort and community. In each subsequent volume, the Lighthouse Kids meet the people and experience the events that gradually transformed Cape Hatteras to the popular area it is today.”

The books can be found through Buxton Village Books, Barnes and Noble, Amazon and the Lighthouse Kids website where you can learn more about the author, Jeannette Gray Finnegan, Jr Torok, a 10th generation Hatteras Islander. Truly a great gift for anyone (not just children) with a sense of adventure and an interest in Hatteras Island.
