From Lowcountry writer, novelist and Lillian Smith Award for Fiction winner William Baldwin comes Inland Passages: Making a Lowcountry Life, which features the coastal regions of Cape Romain and Charleston.
This book is a compilation of over 25 oral histories, essays and observations from the past twenty years by William Baldwin. Though the people and topics covered in the work focus mainly around the Cape Romain and Charleston regions along the South Carolina coast, their themes are universal. With an approach that is introspective and true to the people being interviewed, Baldwin offers up traditional history in an untraditional way, leaving the reader with a sense of place that is often missing from regional writings.
