The Ultimate Collection

Introduction by Ray McAllister

Uncle Jack’s Outer Banks, by Jack Sandberg. Beach Glass Books, April 7, 2020. Hardcover $16. 224 pages.

LONG THE FUNNEST, AND SAVVIEST, commentator on North Carolina’s beloved Outer Banks, “Uncle Jack” Sandberg is back with the ultimate collection of hilarious — and on-the-mark — observations, supplemented by the work on great cartoonists.

Sandberg dispenses stories, advice, criticism, annoyance, warnings, insight, and always laughs, about this narrow strand of islands that has become one of America’s premier vacationlands. From Corolla to Hatteras Island, with stops at Manteo, his beloved South Nags Head, and all spots in-between, Uncle Jack does indeed own the Outer Banks.

          UNCLE JACK’S OUTER BANKS: The Ultimate Collection, is available up and down the Outer Banks and from online sellers. With 69 essays and 22 cartoons, this the perfect gift or memento for anyone who loves the Outer Banks or just likes to laugh. It is, as Uncle Jack says, “a pretty funny book.”



“5-STAR REVIEW. Full of wit, charm, and humor, Uncle Jack’s Outer Banks: The Ultimate Collection will make you laugh and warm your heart through slice-of-life stories dipped in sarcasm, irony, satire, and a heavy dose of nostalgia. Every single essay or letter is laced in absurdity but contains an underlying voice that cuts through and makes a clear and concise statement about the relevant topic. . . . Odds are, you’ll have a blast reading it. Highly recommended.” READERSFAVORITE.COM
