KIRKUS REVIEW

Here's a book you can sell to all your customers bound South to Charleston and environs, to anyone who knows and loves that part of the country, and to most people who like old houses, old furniture and the traditions that built the Old South. This is the story of reclaiming a fine South Carolinian plantation, and doing it on limited funds. There's a sense of adventure a real love for the house and all it stands for, an intimate knowledge of the history and the personalities associated with it, and a deep love for the things of nature, the birds, the wild life of the woods and swamps. Delightful reading.
