Summary
"This illustrated history recounts how, for the past three hundred years, hurricanes have altered lives and landscapes along the Georgia-South Carolina seaboard. A prime target for the fierce storms that develop in the Atlantic, the region is especially vulnerable because of its shallow, gradually sloping sea floor and low-lying coastline." "With an eye on both natural and built environments, Walter Fraser's narrative ranges from the first documented storm in 1686 to recent times in describing how the low-country has endured some of the severest effects of wind and water. This chronology of the most notable lowcountry storms is also a useful primer on the basics of hurricane dynamics."--BOOK JACKET
