TITLE: THE BOOK - Crafting an Outer Banks Classic Ship-in-Bottle explores three key ‘educational’ objectives as set forth in its title construction: ‘OUTER BANKS’ - First, (by way of its Outer Banks IQ challenge quiz, and Project Gallery historical summaries), this book introduces a reader to the unique nautical lore of the Outer Banks. It focuses on two important Outer Banks aspects: Ship Building and Ship Wrecks, (all done under glass). Given its rich maritime history, a book that deals with historic ships, their builders, their captains, and shipwrecks of the ‘Graveyard of the Atlantic’, becomes very much a part of the Outer Bank’s experience. ‘CRAFTING A CLASSIC’ - Secondly, this book is designed specifically to be a ‘beginner’s primer’ to a heritage craft. It is intended to introduce novice crafters, (young and old) to an inexpensive, enjoyable, and highly rewarding hobby that offers an ‘active’ alternative to sedentary hours of computer based social banter. It provides an excellent resource for civic organizations (Boy Scouts/Girl Scouts/Senior Citizen Centers) seeking to adopt a heritage craft as a healthy and productive way to embrace our history, encourage learning, and promote member creativity. ‘SHIP-IN-BOTTLE’ … Lastly, and most importantly, it strives to take the mystery out of the maritime craft of ship-in-bottle building by providing detailed step by step procedures, and a sequential process pictorial to guide a reader to success. When all goes as planned, a reader will produce a ship-in-bottle of a classic Skipjack, a handmade memory of the Outer Banks.
