RICE & DUCKS records the history of the South Carolina rice lands, a landscape that stretches all the way from the Pee Dee River to the Savannah River. It is based on a wealth of personal interviews, letters, family papers, plantation games journals, and other sources. Virginia traces the rise and fall of the Lowcountry’s signature crop, and the other extraordinary conservation ethos that emerged as hunters and other wilderness advocates recognized the need to protect the region’s natural bounty in the face of development and new industries.
DEVEAUX is a reflection on the life of a South Carolina seabird rookery, known as Deveaux Bank at the mouth of the North Edisto River. In this book, author and photographer, Dana Beach, chronicles the annual cycle of reproduction and renewal on this ephemeral sand bar, and the work of the scientists and conservationists who labor to protect it.
