We have an exciting new book to share with you this summer! Our new reading book, Daufuskie Daze: living, learning, and teaching on a South Carolina sea island by Jim Alberto, is available now for preorder and will arrive in mid-July. Daufuskie Island, South Carolina is a place of great natural beauty which is rich in culture and history. It has remained largely undeveloped over the years, with only small nods to what many consider modern civilization, such as a few paved roads. But, it is this sense of distance and freedom from the pressures of contemporary life which continues to attract visitors, year after year. Jim Alberto and his wife, Carol, experienced true island life first-hand when they moved out to this South Carolina barrier island to teach the local children. From navigating weekly boat rides to the mainland for groceries to learning to avoid dangerously close encounters with wildlife, such as snakes and alligators, the Albertos had a pretty steep learning curve. Coming to teach on the island, they had no idea how much they themselves would learn from the island and the people who call it home. You can purchase Daufuskie Daze here.
