Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"In conclusion, this book…is an important contribution to the cache of scholarship on South Carolina history and is also a work that testifies to the value of regional and local history." --West Virginia History (Courtney L. Tollison, Furman University)

"This cohesive collection provides a good introduction to this geographical area of South Carolina and its history. It also enriches readers' understanding of 19th-century southern history as a whole."-- M. Daniel, Choice Magazine

"The subtitle to this book, 'Unexplored Moments in Nineteenth-century South Carolina History,' says it all. In this wonderful collection of essays, anyone interested in South Carolina history will discover aspects of our state's past that have seldom, if ever before, appeared in print. I hope that it will be a model for others in the years to come. Recovering the Piedmont Past is a welcome addition to my South Carolina bookshelf."--Walter Edgar, author of South Carolina: A History

"Focusing on the nineteenth century, a transitional era in South Carolina history, Recovering the Piedmont Past explores a range of topics from upcountry tourism to African American religion to educational institutions to evolution controversies, illuminating the multi-hued characteristics and conventions of the area's residents. The volume adds deeper and richer colors to the picture of our state."-- Amy Thompson McCandless, Dean, Graduate School and Professor of History, College of Charleston
