MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW BOOKWATCH, September 2017:
“The release of [this] ‘enhanced edition’ … allows for the addition of numerous photos and the enlargement of others in a classic … McAllister’s history captures the atmosphere and evolution of the island in such a way that even non-residents and those relatively unfamiliar with Ocracoke will find it a lively, compelling read.” (
