The South Carolina Lowcountry is comparable to an epic work of literature, overflowing with palmettos and live oaks, rivers and shorelines and a natural beauty found nowhere else. If one looks deeper into this irreplaceable work of art to see the people and events that make up its diverse and interesting history, multiple volumes abound. With an eye for history and the unusual, Suzannah Smith Miles leads visitor and local alike through these fascinating volumes. From the Revolution to the Civil War, through hurricanes and earthquakes, Suzannah shows the reader the Lowcountry as only a local can. Drawing on her extensive knowledge of local history and a lifetime of personal observations, Suzannah has brought to life narratives that are as unique as the region itself. Whether it is okra, oyster roasts and the food of the region, or the Gullah language and historic locales, the reader cannot help but feel immersed in this distinct Southern world.
