To Hear Them Tell It
Take a step back in time and learn from native Charlestonians what it was like to grow up here. This anthology portrays a collective consciousness shared by residents of a time when the city was very different than it is today. This image of Charleston is drawn from the interviews of over two dozen people whose recollections typify those of many residents - folks from both Uptown and Downtown, from various backgrounds and walks of life. Their reflections depict a Charleston that had none of today's "spit and polish" but had a charm that only the locals knew.
For newcomers who wish to glimpse an earlier version of Charleston and for long-time residents who own memories will be rekindled by reading it, this book is one that will appeal to both groups.
