Tom Carlson tells the story of Ernal Foster and the Foster family of Hatteras Village, who gave birth to what would become the multi-million dollar charter fishing industry on the Outer Banks. Today, Ernal's son, Captain Ernie Foster, struggles to keep the family business alive in a time of great change on the Banks. Within the engaging saga of the rise and decline of one family's livelihood, Carlson relates the history and transformation of Hatteras Village and the high-adrenaline experience of blue-water sportfishing and the industry that surrounds it. Hatteras Blues is their story--a story of triumph and loss, of sturdy Calvinist values and pell-mell American progress, and of fate and luck as capricious as the weather.At high season, there are two or three in service, and they run every twenty minutes or so. ... Dogs wag and sprint, children assault the dunes, while couples press a€œReclinea€ and stick their bare feet out the windows. ... Running down the middle of the ferry is a narrow passenger cabin maybe twenty feet up in the air.
