    Amazing

    I purchased this book as a gift. My only regret is that I didn't purchase one for myself. This book is everything Gullah and everything Jonathan Green all under one cover. If you love the rich coastal culture of the South Carolina barrier islands...and the amazing artist, you will not be able to leave the book on the coffee table.
