About the book
After leading the life of an average man within a civilized society, D.J.
Sharp finds himself in a remote swamp area of North Carolina along the
coast of the Outer Banks where his nearest neighbors are a pair of otters
in a pond just outside the door of his cabin. He emerges, 17 months later,
with a new and profound understanding of the world around him and how he
fits in it.
About the Author
David Sharp was born in Norfolk, Virginia, but spent most of his youth
in Richmond. He visited the Outer Banks on family vacations and became
a permanent resident at the age 31 in 1985. He has owned a store
which dealt deeply in exotic pets and, later, a drywall business. In 2009,
he left his business to pursue an entirely different avenue as a volunteer
in the Red Wolf Recovery Program along the Alligator River just outside
of Manteo, North Carolina.
