Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grades 1-3--One of the original life-saving stations along North Carolina's Outer Banks, Pea Island Station had the first all African-American crew. On October 11, 1896, Keeper Richard Etheridge and six surfmen rescued all of the passengers and crew from the E. S. Newman, which had run aground in a storm. It was not until 1996 that the heroes were acknowledged and awarded gold medals from President Clinton and Admiral Kramek of the U.S. Coast Guard. This skillfully written story tells the tale of that fateful night through the eyes of 10-year-old Sam Deal. The text and evocative, full-color watercolor artwork give life to a long-forgotten and exciting sea rescue. The careful research authenticates the events and honors the African Americans, and an afterword explains their historical importance. A page-turner for newly independent readers.

More About the Author

Though I've published 115 books, I feel I'm just now writing the books I was meant to write. As a ninth generation Virginian, I've often written about my native state--historical fiction, nonfiction, biography. A few years ago, I decided to write funny contemporary books set in Virginia. IVA HONEYSUCKLE DISCOVERS THE WORLD (Disney-Hyperion) and REBEL MCKENZIE (Disney-Hyperion) both celebrate life in small quirky towns that can be found anywhere in the South. Where else would you find a cat named Doublewide with a fondness for pudding cups? Where else would double-first cousins be best-best friends or (in Iva's case) best-enemies? I love writing books for kids and teens that will make them laugh and inspire them to explore the richness of their own backyards, no matter where they live.
