Kiawah Island, located on the picturesque South Carolina coast in the heart of the Lowcountry, has a well-deserved reputation as a world-renowned destination. With its pristine beaches, award-winning golf courses and spectacular resort, Kiawah beckons to thousands of visitors from across the globe each year. Kiawah's charm, however, goes far beyond its breathtaking natural beauty and vaunted destination status. Unknown to many, the history of this beloved sea island is as captivating as its celebrated shoreline; its past as compelling as #17 on the Ocean Course. This landmark new book reveals the history of Kiawah Island as never before. Since the early eighteenth century, Kiawah has been used for myriad purposes by a wide variety of inhabitants. Kiawah Island: A History, by historian Ashton Cobb, provides a comprehensive consideration of the diverse factors and factions that have combined to shape Kiawah's fascinating history. Cobb calls upon a wide array of sources to tell the story of a South Carolina sea island that has been the site of great change through the centuries, but has remained a treasured location for generations of inhabitants and devoted visitors.
