It is said that the sea island cotton grown in the fertile black soil of Edisto never went on the market--it was contracted for before the seed was put in the ground.  Avidly sought by mill owners of the world, this cotton made Edisto Island the center of the kingdom.  Nell S Graydon retells tales from those days, handed down from generation to generation.
Present-day Edisto is irrevocably interwoven with its past.  Mrs. Graydon concludes the book with an account of island customs and activities - past and present.
To those who know and love it, Edisto Island will always have an aura of romance and mystery.
