Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"It is good to have Duncan Clinch Heyward's engaging and richly detailed excursion into the life and lore of the South Carolina low country available to a new generation of readers. Peter Coclanis has written an unsentimental and intellectually provocative introduction that is a perfect foil to Heyward's poignant memoir of what he considered the twin tragedies of the lowcountry in general and the Heyward family in particular."--Charles Joyner, author of Down by the Riverside

"Coclanis's new introduction additionally alerts the current reader to the value of the book for its material on ethnography, the rise of social classes, the impact of the expansion and elaboration of capitalism, and the effects of shifts in international comparative advantage as related to large agricultural enterprises."--North Carolina Historical Review
