The Travelers’ Charleston is an innovative collection of firsthand narratives that document the history of the South Carolina lowcountry region, specifically the Charleston area, from 1666 until the start of the Civil War. Jennie Holton Fant has compiled and edited a rich and comprehensive history as seen through the eyes of writers from outside the South. She provides a selection of unique texts that include the travelogues, travel narratives, letters, and memoirs of a diverse array of travelers who described the region over time. Further Fant has mined her material not only for validity but to identify any people her travelers encounter or events they describe. She augments her resources with detailed annotations and provides a wealth of information that enhances the significance of the texts.
