New York Times Bestseller: The “miraculous” memoir of an inspiring teacher and the students who changed his life on an impoverished South Carolina island (Newsweek). Though the children of Yamacraw Island live less than two miles from the southern mainland, they can’t name the US president or the ocean that surrounds them. Most can’t read or write. Many of the students are the descendants of slaves, handicapped by poverty and isolation. When Pat Conroy arrives, an eager young teacher at the height of the civil rights movement, he finds a community still bound by the bitter effects of racism, but he is determined to broaden its members’ horizons and give them a voice. In this poignant memoir, which Newsweek called “an experience of joy,” the New York Times–bestselling author of The Prince of Tides plumbs his experiences as a young teacher on an isolated South Carolina island to reveal the shocking inequalities of the American education system.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The superintendent is the remote deity of the southern school system. He hires and fires, manipulates the board of education, and maintains the status quo. #2 Yamacraw is an island off the South Carolina mainland not far from Savannah, Georgia. It is populated with black people who depend on the sea and their small farms for a living. Several white families live on the island in a paternalistic but symbiotic relationship with their neighbors. #3 The parable of Yamacraw is a story of how the black people of an island supported themselves well, worked hard, and lived up to the sacred tenets of the Protestant ethic. Then a villain came and contaminated the creeks, which led to the oysters dying and the people dying with them. #4 I was a nomad growing up, moving constantly with my military father. I loved the smooth-watered fifties, when I worried about the top-ten tunes and the homecoming queen.
