Driven from his home by the Ku Klux Klan and still reeling from the death of his mother, Nathan moves with his father and grandfather to the desolate Pea Island on the Outer Banks of North Carolina to start a new life. Fortunately, life on Pea Island at the end of the 19th century is far from quiet. The other island residents include the surfmen--the African American crew of the nearby U.S. Life-Saving Station--and soon Nathan is lending an extra hand to these men as they rescue sailors from sinking ships. Working and learning alongside the courageous surfmen, Nathan begins to dream of becoming one himself. But the reality of post-Civil War racism starts to show itself as he gradually realizes the futility of his dream. And then another dream begins to take shape, one that Nathan refuses to let anyone take from him.

"From the Hardcover Library Binding edition."

From the Publisher:
Having been chased away from his hometown by the KKK, Nathan is determined to make a stand when prejudice shows its ugly face again as he pursues his dream of becoming a rescuer of men from sinking ships like the other African-American crewmen on Pea Island. An ALA Notable Book. Reprint.
Annotation:
In this novel set in the 19th-century American south, a young African-American boy named Nathan finds himself driven from his home by the Ku Klux Klan. Now living with his grandfather and father on an island on North Carolina's Outer Banks, Nathan begins working with the all African-American crew of the nearby U.S. Life-Saving Station and is soon caught up in the dangerous work of saving others from sinking ships. Although Nathan dreams of officially joining the crew, he worries that racism will once again destroy his hopes.
