The island is nearly deserted, haunting, beautiful. Across a slip of ocean lies South Carolina. But for the handful of families on Yamacraw Island, America is a world away. For years the people here lived proudly from the sea, but now its waters are not safe. Waste from industry threatens their very existence, unless, somehow, they can learn a new life. But they will learn nothing without someone to teach them, and their school has no teacher.

I enjoyed Pat Conroy's love of his landscape in 'Prince of Tides.' This books explains where that love came from and tells a compelling story about his teaching career with a group of seriously underprivileged children. The book, though written in 1972, is still engaging and tells of the persistence of racism in America, a problem we still face forty-four years later.
