Charleston Salt and Iron

$ 39.95

Discover the beauty, strength and timeless allure of the South's crown jewel. 

This is a different kind of Charleston book. It is a collection of stunning images, essays and stories written by business leaders, writers, artists, musicians and those who have their family trees deeply rooted in soil tended by generations of Charlestonians.

Travel through these pages and experience Charleston as you've never seen it. The history, the events and the sheer beauty that continues to shape all who come into contact with her.

Explore the city's historic homes and cobblestone streets, listen for the rhythm of the tides, and paddle past the crash grass fora view of the city's waterfront.

Her historical past gives way to today, still growing and still awe-inspiring.

Charleston Salt and Iron is what this city is about - turn the pages and enjoy the journey.

Foreword by New York Times Best Selling Author Mary Alice Monroe.

Her third book, SOUTH, What it means to be here in heart or in spirit, published by Lydia Inglett Publishing is a collection of essays and defining photography in a stunning coffee table book. SOUTH won the Gold Award from Independent Publishers for Best Regional Non-Fiction.

“I love Wendy Pollitzer’s writing. Her instincts are remarkable, her nose for truth infallible. I can’t pick up a journal or magazine that she’s written for without going straight to the table of contents in search of her piece. What I think is so interesting about her work is that she really believes in what she’s doing, in getting it right. She’s very, very good.” - Pat Conroy, Author
