Holden Beach History
as experienced by John F. Holden.

Published 1988 by J.F. Holden in [Holden Beach, N.C.] .
Written in English.

About the Book

The story of Holden Beach -- it's beginning, its magnificent sand dunes, its stalwart old shipwrecks, its fish shacks, its fishermen, its flawless beach, and its continued existence as a quiet and wonderful place for North Carolina's young people to grow up -- all needs to be a part of this state's recorded history. John F. Holden has done this for us in an eloquent way.
-A. Craig Phillips
State Superintendent of Public Instruction, North Carolina

First Sentence

For many years I responded casually and briefly to questions asked about the name of Holden Beach, the shipwrecks, the fisheries, the shrimp boats and the Intracoastal Waterway.
