LOW COUNTRY VOICES :What Coastal Back Roads Folk Told Me of Ghosts, Sea Captains and Charleston Jazzmen

Written by Nancy Rhyne

 


 

From the prologue:
The people I interviewed offered a dazzling spectrum of the rice planter aristocracy, people born in slavery, the hurricanes of the 1890s, the renaissance that began when the wealthy northerners came South and bought up plantations to be used as hunting preserves, and much more. These friendly folks bared their souls to me during my front porch visits. I remember them well. Those gracious people inspired me with their tales. The same fire that burned in their hearts as they recounted a narrative burns now in mine. When I realized that bits and pieces of information from other research projects would aid the reader in understanding a story in this collection, I added them................................Nancy Rhyne.

The Carolina Low Country is a magical place with colorful characters and fascinating legends.  This collection of memorable tales culminated from interviews with long-time residents of the Carolina coast is a means to pass on these legends.  They bared their souls with a fire that burned in their hearts. 


 

 
  This inspiring collection of tales includes the Jenkins Orphanage band, Letters from Alice Flagg’s grave, the origin of She Crab Soup as told by Sue Alston, the adventures of Captain Jussely as he traveled the Atlantic transporting passengers and cargo, and the disappearing Cemetery of Rockville.
