Book Description

The Stories: 
~ Three generations of Flagg family members struggle desperately against a historic hurricane’s fury at Huntington Beach in the suspenseful tale, “The Flagg Flood.”
~ A family faces two major Murrells Inlet storms with strength and courage in the charming reminiscence, “Every Sixty Years.”

The Series: 

~ This is the first installment of Lynn Michelsohn’s new series, More Tales from Brookgreen: Gardens, Folklore, Ghost Stories, and Gullah Folktales in the South Carolina Lowcountry.
~ Brookgreen Gardens storytellers share more history and folklore from Murrell Inlet’s popular tourist attraction near Myrtle Beach.

The Storytellers:
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.

The Setting
:
Created in the 1930s from four historic Lowcountry rice plantations rich with folklore, Brookgreen Gardens displays American sculpture along ancient pathways through Spanish-moss-draped live oaks.
