"Diverse historic and contemporary photographs convey the multiple personalities of both the river and its human inhabitants. -- Dr. Rodger Stroupe, director of the SC Department of Archives and History

From Chapter 1:
The river has stories to tell. Some it holds deep within its dark waters and some it shares as history plays out upon its banks. We know of Indian princesses, of brave explorers, of teamboats and steamboats and plantations where life on the river was both graceful and hard
From the Epilogue:
many people have lived all or part of their lives on its banks John Lederer as he explored unknown territory, William Waites as he pursued trade with Native Americans, the Witherspoon family as they faced the dangers of the wilderness. The river has its own voice that speaks to us in its own way. The words are there. Listen.
