Originally published in 1970 as part of South Carolina's tricentennial celebration, this is a collection of photographer Leigh Richmond Miner's large-format black-and-white images of life on a Carolina low-country barrier island. This pictorial chronicle of life among the post-Civil War freed black community in and around the Penn School on St. Helena Island was prepared under the direction of historian Edith M. Dabbs. Using the latest in high-quality digital duotone reproduction, this reprint edition exceeds the original in revealing the skill and sophistication of Miner's photographic abilities as well as providing a unique look at a truly exceptional aspect of American life.
