This charming booklet covers several interesting topics on the topic of figs and Ocracoke Island. Local historian and author Chester Lynn writes about the history of Ocracoke and the fig trees, recalling some of his childhood memories. Chester as an O'Cocker (native of Ocracoke) traces the heritage of his family on the island for more than 40 generations. He is one of few remaining islanders that speak the Ocracoke Brogue. His stories can be heard in the book through a QR reader. This booklet is of interest to horticulturists, history enthusiasts, as well as students of linguistics...
