Judah publishes new book

-A A +A

“More Legends: Tales and Traditions of Brunswick County and Southeastern North Carolina” is the latest book published by local author Christy Judah.

“More Legends” provides a personal glimpse into life on the coast from the Green Swamps to Rabontown, Exum, Sunset Beach and Southport...to Leland and all points in between where the histories of unincorporated community areas are detailed.

Experience the “Duel of 1765” that resulted in a murder charge, the Gullah-Geechee traditions, kunering, shrimping, oystering, farming, Seneca Guns and deer hunting. There are stories of black bears, bobcats, deer, alligators and baldhead eagles from Mill Creek to Ash...all true.

Readers can relive hurricanes, like Hazel, through the eyes and experiences of locals who survived them. Read further for a taste of politics (both then and now) and see whose fingers were caught in the ballot box. 

Meet some seniors who remember tidbits of local history…from discrimination in the ’60s to holiday traditions in the 1930s...from the Oyster Roast at Dixon Chapel to the Tar Kilns of the 19th century...from wild turkeys to cougars and bears...from gators to hogs running wild.

“More Legends” provides a hint of how it is and how it was in Southeastern North Carolina. Published by Coastal Books.
