Abstract:
Neal Harvey of Davis left his job as a commercial fisherman in the 1980s. First he sold nets and trawls, but business declined; then he sold crab pots, but that declined as well. Again he searched for a way to generate income. Material used in crab pot making proved to be the inspiration for his next venture-the Core Sound Christmas tree. The tree is made from green mesh, comes with the lights installed, and is usable both indoors and out. At the end of the season, the tree folds up for storage. The popular tree is sold from Long Island down to Florida.

Abstract:
Roanoke Island is synonymous with the Lost Colony of the 1580s. A second colony flourished there during the Civil War. This one was composed of slaves who sought refuge behind the lines of Union soldiers, who occupied a portion of the eastern part of the state. By 1864, ex-slaves on the island numbered 2,700. Freedmen's Colony was a thriving community with churches, schools, and homes. Angione explores the history of this colony and how it is commemorated today.

Abstract:
Seahorses are unlike any other fish in the ocean. They swim upright and have necks, and their bodies resemble compilations of parts of a horse, lizard, and aardvark. Usually found in tropical waters, seahorses often ride sargassum dislodged by storms to North Carolina's waters. The lined seahorse and longsnout seahorse are most common in the state's southeastern waters. Over twenty million seahorses are harvested annually worldwide for jewelry and medicinal purposes.
