The South I Knew is an intimate, time-woven celebration of the five generations of Southern tradition, lore, beauty, and appreciation for life’s simple treasures – being passed down through stories to the author’s three children and a world of readers.
Set primarily in the historic regions of Horry County, South Carolina, The South I Knew features stories of a culture both breathtaking and roughscrabble, beautiful and ornery, complicated in its personal intrigues, yet simple and sweet in its lifestyle.
Join author Christian Monroe Holliday Douglas – a fourth-generation native of the region – in this moving tribute to the land and people she loves. Weaving her stories in a voice resonating with pure Southern storytelling magic, Mrs. Douglas mixes the humorous with the tragic, the poignant with the light-hearted. She takes us by the hand, says ”let me tell y’all a story,” and guides us into the heart of every tale – often with the wink of a green eye and a laugh that is full of life. Like every page of The South I Knew.

"The narratives of Christy's memoir show great promise of the good things to come. The writing is pure and honest and done in the fine tradition of Southern story tellin'. There aren't going to be any secrets around Galivants Ferry any more."
-- Ben Moise, author of Ramblings of a Lowcountry Game Warden: A Memoir
