A wonderful account of the history of one of the most important counties in South Carolina. An easy read, reads almost like a novel, but well detailed and extremely well researched. The best book of it's kind.

No matter what era or subject it is very well covered here. Tells not only the story of this small coastal county but tells the real story of the founding of this nation and the triumphs and hardships of the founding fathers. Not afraid to point out the excesses good and bad of it's inhabitants this book is a must read for the serious reader as well as a casual reference. Not many books can say that. This book just made me want more!

I was expecting a droll history of Beaufort County and was pleasantly surprised by a very thorough and engaging account spanning three centuries. A must read for those wanting a strong foundation from which to view current events in coastal South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. Looking forward to 1861 and beyond.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A sweeping, engaging, and comprehensive history of the South Carolina Lowcountry--about as good a county or even regional history as I've ever read. The power of this book is the author's ability to weave many different threads into a cohesive narrative of the history of Beaufort, and moreover, to do so in a way that nearly reads like very good fiction in places--the narrative is just so well-crafted. But fiction it is not, and real history well-told is what it is.

Reading this book is essential I feel if you live in the region, but also very useful in understanding the early history and formation of ideals and values of any portion of the coastal South to some extent. What made the rice planters of the region so wealthy? What made some with the means to seek their riches in Charleston as businessmen instead of as planters and where did the social lines between the country planter and urban gentleman form, and why? More importantly, what was so distinct about these lifestyles that lead South Carolina to be a leading champion of states' rights in the years prior to the US Civil War and what still leaves traces of this unique attitude of independence, entitled bearing, and stubborn gentility in many South Carolinians to this very day? These sociological questions are not the primary area of concern for this book, yet they are issues touched upon in various ways here. To read this book, and to really understand what the history within its pages tells us, helps form not only an understanding of the region but of many aspects of Southern life and South Carolina. As it is a rather long book at just under 600 pages including supporting materials, I am thankful that it is also so very engaging and so well-written cover-to-cover.
