Overview

South Carolina is a land of contrasts -- placid salt marshes and thundering Appalachian falls, majestic Lowcountry plantations and austere cotton farms, gracious manners and fiery passions. In Moon's new South Carolina Handbook, author Mike Sigalas provides a thoughtful look at the history and people of this defiant state, with insights into its myriad subcultures from the Bluegrass world of the mountain mill towns to the unique Gullah culture of the coast. In addition to exploring the cobblestone streets of Charleston and the golf meccas of Myrtle Beach, Sigalas offers readers such unusual destinations as Cheraw, birthplace of Dizzy Gillespie; Ocean Drive Beach, headquarters of the Shagging subculture; and Cayce, home to the world's only combination BBQ joint, gospel mission, and job office. South Carolina Handbook also focuses on the state's outdoor recreation offerings, including Chattooga River whitewater and the new statewide Palmetto Trail. Extensive listings, unparalleled maps, and fascinating sidebars round out this comprehensive guide.

Editorial Reviews

Rodney Stevens
Mike Sigalas covers the state's history, people, shops, events, and accommodations. He delves into locations as various as the Blue Ridge and Hell Hole Swamp (2000 acres of "wilderness...[and] swamp critters" in the Francis Marion National Forest). And he gives fine advice on everything from sharks ("Lose the flashy jewelry. Sharks can't see well in South Carolina's murky waters, but they'll see the glitter from that...belly ring of yours") to pronunciation (Sherman is "SAY-tun"). We South Carolinians, it turns out, are "a diverse and gracious people" who are "taught to say 'please' and 'thank you,'" whether we feel like it or not. Thank you, Mike. It's a terrific book--and that's gospel.

    Great Guidebook to South Carolina!

    This is the best travel book I've seen on South Carolina! The maps are really helpful along with the descriptions/recommendations of accomodations, restaurants, and sites. The book is humorous and well written, and includes fascinating sidebars on South Carolina history and culture as well as fun and unique things to see and do. I highly recommend this book!
