Resources for Kids

This is an updated collection of all the resources I’ve mentioned in my books, along with a lot of new ones that I just didn’t have room for. I’ve tried to organize them by topic (for example, lighthouses, North Carolina, dogs).


Lighthouses

Lighthouses of the Carolinas: A Short History and Guide by Terrance Zepke. Published by Pineapple Press; 1st edition (June 1, 1998)

Stephen Wilmoth posted an article with a great set of pictures when the Outer Banks Lighthouse Society (OBLHS) visited the Price’s Creek Lighthouse in 2005.
