Ocracoke in the fifties by Dare Wright( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Half a century after the publication of The Lonely Doll, Dare Wright remains a subject of fascination. A strikingly attractive woman-child-a model and fashion photographer who always saw the world through the eyes of a girl-she was the author of nineteen children's books that are still remembered fondly by a legion of fans. Ocracoke in the Fifties, now in print for the first time, is Dare Wright's only book for adults. First and foremost, it is a tribute to one of Dare's favorite places. It is also a time capsule of a unique island culture just past the midpoint of the twentieth century. And surprisingly, it is a testament to the timelessness of Ocracoke--which would please Dare immensely. Ocracoke has seen its share of changes, to be sure, but readers will have no trouble recognizing the durable little island off the North Carolina coast
