The Sands of Time: A History of Hilton Head Island based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
This is a very short (70 p.) illustrated history of Hilton Head. It gives the reader a good idea of the island's role during the Revolutionary and Civil War periods. It does, however, leave the reader wishing for a fuller treatment of the island's development since the 1950s. Although the author clearly did utilize resources, there are only a few internal citations and no footnotes. The sources quoted internally do not match up with the book's bibliography. It is unclear whether the author actually utilized the sources being cited or if she was relying on quotes in the secondary sources in her bibliography. The book is clearly aimed for the tourist market and succeeds in being a fairly interesting account for the general reader.
