The coast of South Carolina is fringed by a series of low islands covered with glistening white sands, forming little hills that shift with the varying winds. Dewees is one such windswept retreat--and author James Cochrane lovingly traces its history in Dewees: The Island and Its People. Page through Dewees's intriguing history as the island withstands the peril of British invasion during the American Revolution and revels in its modern-day incarnation as a nature preserve. Without automobiles, without a golf course, without inns, restaurants or malls, without a bridge, Dewees Island is like a drop of amber, capturing the treasures of the past and the wonders of nature for all to view.
