South Carolina: A Bicentennial History

By Louis B. Wright | Go to book overview

Suggestions for Further Reading

The history of South Carolina is well recorded, and good bibliographies appear in the recent histories. The most comprehensive reading list for nonspecialists is Lewis P. Jones, Books and Articles on South Carolina History, Tricentennial Booklet no. 8 (Columbia: University of South Carolina Press, 1970). A more detailed bibliography is J. H. Easterby, A Guide to the Study and Reading of South Carolina History: A General Classified Bibliography (Columbia: University of South Carolina Press, 1950). Lewis P. Jones's South Carolina: A Synoptic History for Laymen (Columbia: University of South Carolina Press, 1971) is readable, accurate, and succinct, the best available history of South Carolina for readers who do not want to become bogged down in too much detail.

The wisest, most comprehensive general history is David Duncan Wallace, History of South Carolina, 4 volumes (New York: American Historical Society, 1934). The fourth volume, not compiled by Wallace, contains biographical sketches of South Carolinians, many of them obscure. A condensed version of Wallace, South Carolina: A Short History (Chapel Hill: University of North Carolina Press, 1951) is almost as inclusive as the longer work.

A readable book supplying folklore and human interest is Henry Savage, River of the Carolinas: The Santee (Chapel Hill: University of North Carolina Press, 1968); and a good account of aboriginal inhabitants will be found in Chapman J. Milling, Red Carolinians (Chapel Hill: University of North Carolina Press, 1940).

Writing on the colonial period, theme of countless books, centers in Charleston and the Low Country. Verner W. Crane, The Southern Frontier, 1670-1732 (Durham: Duke University Press, 1928) is a pioneer work, useful and readable. Paul Quattlebaum, The Land Called Chicora: The Carolinas under Spanish Rule (Gainesville: University of Florida Press, 1956) gives an account of early European competition for the Carolinas. M. Eugene Sirmans, Colonial South Carolina:
