About this book
Charleston: A Historic Walking Tour will help natives and visitors alike appreciate the history and residents of this beautiful city. With its architecture, palm trees, and cobblestone streets, Charleston is one of the South's great cultural destinations. Its ballrooms and benevolent society halls attest to grand periods of opulence and high living. The theater, libraries, museum, and college show an appreciation for culture and sophistication. But don't let the city's beauty hide its turbulent history. The horrors of bombardment and occupation by conquering armies have left their marks. The city has experienced bleak times and disasters, including fires, a devastating earthquake, and hurricanes, not to mention the challenges of Reconstruction. Yet Charleston has survived its darker days, and now may be the city's finest hour. Neighborhoods from Calhoun Street to the Battery are in better condition today than they have ever been before. This book offers three tours to explore the historic downtown: the Meeting Street loop, the Legare Street loop, and the Ansonborough tour. Enjoy the walk, and let the city tell you its story.

    More psychological than your typical romance

    My perception is that this is a story for a "mature audience". By that evaluation I do NOT mean that it is in any way risqué or improper or overly erotic - quite the opposite. However, it is far more psychological than your typical romance, and it is not in any sense an action story.Thornton obviously knows her locale; her descriptions of the city of Charleston and the surrounding countryside are vivid and evocative. Likewise, she is clearly conversant with local art and the provenance of artworks. Although those who are not interested in the processes of authentication of artworks might find these descriptions tedious, I rather enjoyed them - especially the discussion of Eliza's attempts to verify a pastel portrait, and her subsequent endeavors to develop an exhibition of the work of "Slave Potter Dave".I have complained in the past that I don't always agree with the way some novelists end their stories, and that is true in the case of "Charleston"... 4/5 Trudie Barreras - See all my reviews, May 11, 2014

    We Are Our Past

    Excellent first work of fiction by Margaret Bradam Thornton that immediately sweeps you into Charleston, South Carolina with it’s deep sense of history, tradition, and old family community. Eliza Poinsett comes home after ten years, and finds that it is as if she hadn’t left. Emotional ties, still pull, and she is quickly wrapped up in the rhythms of her past, which is intricately woven among Charleston’s landscape and history.This is a gentle, reflective novel without sharp dramatic edges. It’s a novel that is just simply enjoyable to pick up and immerse yourself in. Perhaps the most satisfying part is the description of Charleston itself, as a culture that looks back more than forward, and how that plays apart in Eliza’s own search for understanding.Along the way, the author uses a couple predictable plot elements that may disappoint some; but it is the reflective, never strident, events of the story that offers a sort of healing... 5/5 VReviews (USA) - See all my reviews, May 6, 2014

    A Hauntingly Beautiful Novel

    When I first saw the synopsis for Charleston by Margaret Bradham Thornton I knew I wanted to read it. Eliza grew up in Charleston but left for art study in New York and then London when things didn't work for her and her high school sweetheart, Henry. She unexpectedly meets up with Henry at a wedding in London, and he tells her to contact him when she's back in Charleston. Now she's back in Charleston for what should be a short visit. But as she absorbed again into the people and culture of the charming Southern cit,y, Eliza has to decide if one can ever truly go home again, go back to what was.This book is beautiful. The descriptions of the people and places of Charleston were alive. I love Charleston, and, having lived in South Carolina all my life, I've been there many times. Reading this book I could see all the things I love about Charleston, and having things related from Eliza's point of view gave me inside information that I've never known as a tourist. It was... 4/5 L. Courtney "Book Mom" - See all my reviews, May 31, 2014

    A Realtor's Best Friend

    0 4/5 Jarret405 "Earl" (Charleston, SC USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Moving to Charleston: The Un-Tourist Guide (Paperback) I've been a realtor for some time now in Charleston and I love this book! There is no better resource out there for someone debating whether or not to move to Charleston. I have recommended this book to numerous clients and the feedback I've received has always been positive - not to mention it's usually followed by a move to Charleston! My only complaint is that it could have been longer - Charleston just has so much to offer. Get this book even if you already live in Charleston. It's a must read! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 29, 2014

    The best currently available, but still too small

    Jim Morekis knows this area, and his insights display an enthusiastic authenticity. His writing style is both engaging and witty, making this guide a pleasure to read. Jim understands that, though these deeply historic Southern "capitals" share some physical similarities, they are sprung from different mothers: Savannah is an English colonial city, formal and planned, while Charleston is a Caribbean city, organic and more akin to Nassau or Bridgetown.This is the best guide currently available for Charleston and Savannah, though I believe it is still too brief. Brevity aside, Jim's recommendations are spot on, and the listings he has chosen are sure to provide travelers with an exciting, authentic experience. There is coverage of sights, activities and listings for a variety of tastes and budgets, from the historian to the party animal. There are many sidebars and special interest sections (Literary Lark, African-American history, Civil War, etc...) that add... 4/5 Jon L.

    0 5/5 DI Booklover - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Moon Charleston & Savannah (Moon Charleston and Savannah) (Paperback) I looked at a large number of guides before a recent trip to Savannah, both in the library and bookstores.The older edition of this one was the best by far and I was delighted to find this new one on Amazon.Unlike many guides, not only is this informative—with sidebars on very interesting facts and customs omitted inmost guides—but it is extremely well written. It's the only guide you will need. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 24, 2015

My family does a lot of traveling, especially to cities with historic value. We thought the map was great and loved the historic insert and points of interest. My middle school children had no problem using it either. I am thrilled with all the Streetwise products, they are also easy to store and last forever! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 17, 2009

    right size and scale

    0 5/5 Veteran Reds Fan "confused college prof" (was Ohio now Tennessee) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Streetwise Charleston Map - Laminated City Center Street Map of Charleston, South Carolina - Folding pocket size travel map (Map) I find these Streetwise maps in general very useful. They have a lot of detail but not too much and are a good size not to be conspicuous, especially if you're the type that doesn't use a smartphone. I love Charleston and visit at every opportunity, which still isn't often enough to have downtown memorized. This map is just what I need. It has two different scale maps of the lower peninsula, and two different scale maps of the environs, which is useful for driving. Plus a small map of North Charleston near the airport.There is one minor error on the maps of downtown. The church at the corner of Broad and Legare is the Roman Catholic Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, not as the 2012 edition reads, St. John the Divine.Otherwise, nice map and great value for the price. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 9, 2014
