Following in the footsteps of his critically acclaimed, Afoot in the South: Walks in the Natural Areas of North Carolina, Phillip Manning now explores South Carolina, the state where he was raised. Each of the fifteen walks featured in this book represents a distinctive natural environment found in South Carolina. Manning travels from the great riding trails of Cape Romain to the ancient cypresses in the black-water swamp of Francis Beidler Forest; from Santee Coastal Reserve where fifty thousand ducks winter each year to Caesars Head State Park with its huge tulip poplars. By centering each walk around one or two notable natural or historical facts, Manning weaves a rich essay about each area. He supplements theses essays with practical information such as maps, details of who to contact and where to stay, and suggested reading lists.
