David Poyer, Wilkes faculty member and ever-prolific writer, was recently featured on the blog “Our Stories by Paul Clancy: Columns in the Virginian-Pilot.”
In Happier than this Day and Time, Poyer introduces us to eight individuals rooted in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. In this “Oral History,” we are taken to another time, another place, where real life voices are revisited. Conversations stem from interviews conducted in the late 1970s and early 1980s, with folks who look back on their isolation in the Outer Banks.
Here’s what readers have to say:
“A major contribution to the preservation of the lore and heritage of the Outer Banks.” — David Stick
“The voices ring with authenticity.” — Paul Clancy, Norfolk Virginian-Pilot
“Many of us who came of age before WWII harbor an abiding belief that life back then was slower, simpler and infinitely richer in human connections. In this collection of eight personal narratives from old-time Outer Banks residents, David Poyer provides compelling evidence that this is indeed true.” – Joan La Blanc, amazon reader
Happier than this Day and Time is available from Northampton House and the Kindle edition is selling for a mere $3.99
