Lovely writing about land that is familiar to me although some parts are more lyrical than others.

Lanham sings with wise and provocative wit of land ethics moving forward with social justice and loving his family and their place of origin.

If you enjoy prose that flows—like poetry, heartwarming & witty family stories, lyrical nature revelry, thoughtful social justice advocacy rooted in a strong South Carolina land ethic and a plethora of optimism then this book will charm & enlighten you!
This book offers so many powerful connections; I highly recommend this book to book clubs!
