William's Light Goes Out: A Story of Nags Head and Pirates
Since Merry’s life has been rich in love for children and rich with fascination for American history a book like William’s Light Goes Out: A Story of Nags Head and Pirates was a certainty. Her grandchildren Clara, Samuel, and Gary are arch types of the characters William and Hazel in this historical drama. The story background is the Outer Banks on the Atlantic seaboard in North Carolina. During the 17th and 18th centuries the Atlantic seaboard was an area of much sea pirate activity. A variation of piracy evolved in the Outer Banks known as land piracy. This entertaining story involves a brother and sister, perhaps 10 and 8 years old, who encounter these land pirates. They must use their problem-solving skills, combining hope and bravery, to handle an urgent situation.
