Between Myrtle Beach and Charleston lies the Cape Romain archipelago, which links with adjoining barrier islands to form a section of pristine, protected coast designated as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Local sailing enthusiast Bob Raynor, author of Exploring Bull Island, spent years weaving through the archipelago in his silent sailboat, Kingfisher. On his many forays through the wild territory, he encountered diverse and abundant wildlife, Native American shell middens, storms, conservation efforts and plenty of cultural and natural history. His captivating, firsthand descriptions of the area, which is under threat from coastal development, offer a priceless glimpse into one of South Carolina's most important natural treasures.
