By Phillip Manning-- Phillip Manning explores South Carolina, the state where he was raised. Each of the fifteen walks featured in this book represents a distinctive natural environment found here. Manning travels from the great birding 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 these essays with practical information such as maps, details of who to contact and where to stay, and suggested reading lists. Phillip Manning's writing has appeared in Field & Stream, the Washington Post, and numerous other publications. The author and editor of the newsletter Walker's World, and winner of the 1999 National Outdoor Book Award in Nature & Environment. Soft cover, 238 pages.
