Synopsis: 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.

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.
About the Author: Edith M. Dabbs was a historian and native of South Carolina who had a lifetime interest in the island of St. Helena's. Leigh Richmond Miner was a Connecticut-born photographer and teacher at Hampton Institute.
