Overview

Horry County, South Carolina, 1730-1993 chronicles the colorful yet little-known past of the state's largest county, a region now known primarily for the world-famous beaches of its "Grand Strand". Surrounded by ocean, rivers, swamps, and the North Carolina border, Horry County remained geographically and culturally isolated from the rest of South Carolina for much of its history and, as such, developed a distinctive culture and a reputation as the "Independent Republic". In this absorbing history of South Carolina's northeastern corner, Catherine H. Lewis tells the story of the state's least-understood region and of its transformation from a secluded farming district to one of North America's most popular vacation spots.
