Sample text

I was now more than a mile from Deep Creek Landing, alone in bear country, never mind bulls, and I recalled the tale of my cousin Thomas Yerby, who two generations ago was sheri≠ of Tyrrell County and who once, returning from a deer hunt hereabouts, found the swamp lane back to his vehicle blocked by a large black bear that, upon seeing Thomas, lumbered purposefully toward him. Thomas came out all right, though — ​he had a shotgun and buckshot, and he was loaded, as it turned out that day, for bear.

30 With Jake Mills along, we three first headed for Spruill country, eastern Tyrrell County, for a short two-­day outlier trip, putting in early afternoon at Old Cove Landing on the Little Alligator, site of the old timber village where my great-­grandmother’s family, the Moores, appeared in the 1870s from Maryland in a schooner and she soon met my great-­grandfather Joseph Spruill of the big farm Free and Easy. We cranked the 90-­horse Johnson and cruised down Little Alligator to Big Alligator and then across the three-­mile-­wide river to try to find the entrance to Mill Tail Creek, crawling along the eastern shore and finally seeing the opening, guarded well by shallows and a few cypress and logs and grass, and going in and up Mill Tail five miles to the lake.

Some days the twins, and later Cary too, would clamber into the eight-­foot, ga≠-­rigged shoeboxes, the Optimist Prams, and sail away in and about the harbor of Town Creek, at the Maritime Museum’s sailing school back behind Beaufort to the north. There was little else on the water that looked any gayer than ten or fifteen of these bright, tiny, light-­air craft simply ­circling, or moving north up Gallants Channel toward the Newport River. Other times we floated over in the johnboat to Town Marsh and Carrot Island and swam on the beaches there or at Bird Shoal’s edge on across the broad slough beyond the cedar sandhills where the wild ponies stood or grazed or slept.
