Keeper of Iconic & Unique Outer Banks History Stories



 Nights in Rodanthe

U.S. Life-Saving Service

True, amazing stories of daring  shipwreck rescues from the  Graveyard of the Atlantic by “America's Forgotten Heroes." PLUS the most highly awarded maritime rescue in US history.  It occurred right here on the Outer Banks, August 16, 1918.

OPTION: More stories available

Keeper James

​The 2008 Warner Brothers feature film was, in fact, largely filmed in the village of Rodanthe, NC. Linda had a “Brief but pivotal role” which was the center of the movie's plotline. Her big scene? With   Richard Gere!

In this delightful, amusing yet informative presentation, Linda shares with you the movie story, how it came about that she was in it, and the behind the scenes scoop, including filming locations and film company 'base camp!' You will laugh, you will learn, and you will meet a movie star!  Photo ops available, too.  If you own a copy of the movie, bring it with you and have it autographed. A truly unique Outer Banks experience.

We present live programs to audiences such as your organization. All are 45 to 60 minutes and each contain true stories. All are dramatic, true, documented accounts, and often produce the reaction, “I didn’t know that!” All are educational and entertaining – what we call “edu-tainment.”

“Dramatic Outer Banks Shipwreck Rescues” will take your breath away.

Some examples: Learn of Rasmus Midgett’s single-handed rescue of the Priscilla OR his rescue of the day prior of the Aaron Reppard; Richard Etheridge and his Pea Island crew’s near impossible rescue of the E. S. Newman; and the Chicamacomico Station crew of Mighty Midgetts led by Keeper John Allen Midgett, Jr. to rescue the men of the SS Mirlo – ALL of these stories are worthy of being made into a Hollywood movie!    


James and Linda present in authentic late 1800s period attire and are certain to both educate and entertain your group. 

Time can be allotted for Q&A, photo ops and book signings.
