Rum Gully Tales from Tuckem' Inn

by Pratt Gasque

Pratt Gasque's "front porch" tales are in a southern tradition older than the first settlers Murrells Inlet back in the eighteenth century.  Even today the beautiful South Carolina coastal country encourages the leisurely art of swapping stories.

The book includes memories of building the vacation cottage, Tuckem' Inn, in 1914, how it was then, how it grew and changed.  There are stories of traveling to the beach in a Model T Ford before there was a bridge across the Waccamaw River or a paved beach road, and stories about the days of the magnificent antebellum rice plantations that lined the river.  Also includes stories of striking for flounder or boat races or the first outdoor drama stage in 1915. 

Those who already love the South Carolina coast will find stories to delight them and many that are dear and familiar.  Those who do not know the area will want to remedy that oversight as soon as possible.

(First printing 1990). 2008.
