South Carolina Country Roads

A wonderful foreword by Aïda Rogers. Published by the History Press. Covered by the Orangeburg Times & Democrat.

Book CoverI drove over 10,000 miles avoiding the interstates. I’d pick an obscure spot on the map and hit the road. The stories and photos I collected evolved into a new book due out April 16, 2018: South Carolina Country Roads, A Place Called Obscurity. Among the places I ended up: a ferry to two wild islands, a ghost town, Edgefield’s Camellia Tea, an old car dealership of the 1930s that’s become a legendary eatery—Harold’s Country Club in Yemassee, and a community of the 1930s. Discover much more in this full-color book. More insight into the book.
