A comprehensive account of one of the most beautiful barrier islands on the South Atlantic coast - the Isle of Palms, South Carolina. The book describes the history of the island, located just above Charleston, from the days of the Seewee Indians through the ravages of Hurricane Hugo in 1989, and includes the island's association with many various topics, including pirate's treasure, the Confederate submarine, The Hunley, and Edgar Allen Poe. The book reads as a local's guide to life on the Island - both past and present - featuring such topics as beach-combing, local seafood, and near-by Charleston Harbor. 89 photographs. 108 pp.
