by Lynn MichelsohnThe Stories:
~ A Torpedo, an Admiral, and the USS Harvest Moon ~
The rice mill engineer of Brookgreen Garden's Laurel Hill Plantation strikes a blow for the Confederacy in "Thomas Daggett," a tale of the USS Harvest Moon and one last Confederate naval operation.
~ A Sad Tale from a Tragic War ~
Memories of a special Lowcountry rice plantation feast sustain ragged Confederate soldiers through cold, heat, dust, mud, and despair in "The Legendary Feast."
Brookgreen Gardens storytellers share more history and folklore from Murrell Inlet's popular tourist attraction in near Myrtle Beach in this short collection (10,000 words, 6 illustrations) from Lynn Michelsohn's second series, More Tales from Brookgreen: Folklore, Ghost Stories, and Gullah Folktales in the South Carolina Lowcountry.
Two "sixty-ish" Southern ladies serving as Hostesses at Brookgreen Gardens told these stories of the South Carolina Lowcountry to visitors during the middle of the Twentieth Century. Now, Lynn Michelsohn recounts them to a wider audience.
Brookgreen Gardens, a sculpture garden and wildlife preserve created in the 1930s from four historic Lowcountry rice plantations rich with folklore, displays American sculpture along its pathways winding through ancient live oaks draped with Spanish moss.
