4.0 out of 5 stars An Engaging History September 20, 2007
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book because I have several ancestors who were Huguenots that settled in Purrysburg, S.C. I wanted to know something of what made them tick. I understood their religious convictions while in France or Switzerland, but why did they not maintain their Calvinistic traditions? This book helped to answer some of my questions.

It doesn't give a detailed history of the Huguenots and their great struggles in Europe, although it does give a very good sketch of it. It gives just enough history to get them to the S.C. colony. But it does offer invaluable information of each of the Huguenot colonial towns.

But this was more than just a narrow history of the Huguenots in N. America. It also opened my eyes to the socio-economic conditions of colonial South Carolina, and how these brave people contributed to the overall benefit of the colony. Worth the read if you are interested in colonial history of the South, or of these religiously persecuted people.
