Overview

Your round-trip ticket to the wildest, wackiest, most outrageous people, places, and things the Palmetto State has to offer! Whether you're a born-and-raised South Carolinian, a recent transplant, or just passing through, South Carolina Curiosities will have you laughing out loud as Lee Davis Perry and J. Michael McLaughlin take you on a rollicking tour of the strangest sides of the Palmetto State. Meet the eighteenth-century female pirate Anne Bonney, who dressed as a man and whose performance with a sword was as dazzling as it was bloody. Think twice before stopping in at the Six-Mile House, the nineteenth-century Charleston inn whose proprietors had a macabre sense of hospitality. Read about the island off the coast near Beaufort populated entirely by monkeys at the center of research that has earned the wrath of animal welfare groups.
