Library JournalFrom 1880 to 1947, Pea Island, North Carolina held the only coastal lifesaving station on the Outer Banks that was staffed by African Americans. Random, Tourville, and Trover dramatize the real rescue of the E.S. Newman in 1896, as assisted by the fictional 10-year-old Sam who aspires to be a “surfman” (lifesaving crew member) when he grows up. Back matter includes historical context and further reading.
