Considered the Bible of the Early Settlement of the French along the Santee River, this in-depth study of the 1687 Huguenot settlement on the Santee River in South Carolina, with biographical sketches of the more than 100 French and Swiss Protestant families who lived there, includes maps, plats and more.
Thorough documentation and indexing mark this as a scholarly work, yet the captivating details and relationships of the families on the river will draw you into their stories, many of which begin with details of their lives in France. The book presents life on the frontier of Carolina during this period as revealed by the letters of the colonists and the records they left behind.
