Abstract: The lowcountry of South Carolina has long held sway over all who have lived there, but surprisingly, those from outside of the South often offer the most interesting perspectives on the region. The Travelers’ Charleston: Accounts of Charleston and Lowcountry, South Carolina, 1666-1861, edited by Jennie Holton Fant, chronicles the discovery of the Carolinas in the mid seventeenth century until the beginning of the American Civil War, primarily focusing on Charleston. The city was an increasingly popular destination for American and European travelers who came to observe, to write, and to experience the lowcountry culture.
