Leaving Paris, France, she fled the German “gas bombs” of World War I. Aside from a parrot named Polly, her Ivar Johnson revolver and shotgun were constant companions. She straddled an Indian motorcycle from New York to Bogue Banks on dirt roads. She owned everything from today’s Atlantic Beach to way past Indian Beach here in Carteret County. She was the larger-than-life personae of Alice Green Hoffman. Rodney will explore ‘the unbelievable account of this woman’s life as she forged her own way in the late 19th and early 20th century.” Her adventures, clashes with neighbors, legal entanglements, and relationship with the Roosevelt family make for great story-telling and, as Rodney often points out, if it isn’t true, it ought to be!
