Nothing short of raging adventure and experimentation could stop young Alva Harris. Or older Alva Harris. Or Coast Guardsman Alva
Harris. Or even Professor Alva Harris.
A native of the North Carolina Coast, which he still calls home, he chronicles the wonders of these wetlands and small towns, and even a few decades fighting the seas of the Pacific in the Coast Guard and as a salmon fisherman.
Alva’s very nature is “adventure,” and he lives it to the fullest. Starting with his youth as a Depression-era child in Hyde County, NC, he
rekindles those memories, teaches some history lessons about hunting,fishing, shrimping, and the whole new world of * gasp * electricity. He
holds our hands through seven decades of fun, fear, and what some might call sheer luck!
As you walk into the vivid tales herein, you will enter a rabbit hole, one that is guaranteed to inspire you, inform you, and dance with you. And
you’ll even figure out what BUZZARD’S MYTH means.
