Overview

Originally published in 1900.



____________



There is a tiny barrier island, only 200 yards off the Isle of Palms, where legend still lingers. It is called Goat Island. In the early '30s, a man and his wife lived there in self-exile without electricity or water, choosing to turn their backs on civilization forever. Goat Island remains a place of rustic solitude - a precious, slender slice of land beyond the reach of street lights and bus stops.



It is this sense of mystery and unknown in the midst of a controlled society that has created the "Legend of Goat Island." It began long ago and has been passed down through generations of locals who sometimes share it with worthy tourists.
