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.

    Uneven

    I have enjoyed some of John Jakes' other historical novels in the past and was delighted that he selceted Charleston as the venue of his latest. Unfortunately, I found the book disapointing.It is basically divided into 3 eras starting with the American Revolution to "young America" in the early 1800s to the Civil War. What usually makes Jakes so talented is his ability to link generations for seamless story telling. I really didn't find that here. It was more like 3 loosely connected stories that did not relate the way they should have. The novel was also missing a likable hero. None of the family members were that pleasant and I found myself not really caring about them. The book would have been much improved by having likable people!The section dealing with the era preceeding the Civil War is well written and captures a divisive time. As usual with Jakes, figures from US history walk across the pages (Frederick Douglass, the Grimke sisters). I almost... 2/5 Samantha W. Mckevitt "longislandgirl" (Dix Hills, NY United States) - See all my reviews, August 18, 2002

    You can learn A LOT from the genre of historical fiction...

    ...and John Jakes is one of its master craftsmen. This volume is the multigenerational saga of the fictitious Bell family of Charleston, South Carolina. Its timeline runs from 1720 to 1866 and thus covers a host of tumultuous times in the Low Country community._Charleston_ is divided into three "books." Book One sees Edward Bell fighting on the side of the American Revolution, both before and after Charleston's surrender to the British. Those of us with northern upbringing and education tend to equate the Revolution with Massachusetts in April 1775, not South Carolina in 1781. Either we never learned that Charleston fell to the British in that war, or we had no idea what that meant. Of course, the battle of the colonists versus the loyalists divides the Bell family as well, and the rift seems to widen as the decades pass. Book Two follows Alexandra Bell, her brother Hampton, and their cousins Ouida and Gibbes as they react to slavery issues and take sides in the... 4/5 Corinne H.

    Charleston Review, Fodor's

    0 4/5 mjr - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Fodor's In Focus Charleston, 1st Edition: with Hilton Head & The Lowcountry (Travel Guide) (Paperback) The best thing that I liked about this book was that it was small enough to carry around. I studied it and highlighted points of interest before the trip and it was easy to reference back to it throughout our visit. I liked the descriptions of items under 'points of interest.' I would have liked a longer list of restaurants, especially the restaurants that were not so expensive. The maps in the book were just ok. I would definitely recommend this book; it was a good value. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 10, 2011

    Well balanced, summary guide to the region

    Historians, architects, foodies and gardeners awake! If you've not heard about Charleston, by all means, read this book. If you've heard of, but have never been to Charleston, run, do not walk, to your nearest travel agency and book your trip! Few places anywhere on earth offer the astonishing mix of visual beauty, culture, hedonism and historic preservation that is Charleston. It is, truly, a wonder to behold, and an absolute national treasure.So now that we've established the distinction of the place, let's talk about the book. No guide book to Charleston could possibly cover everything there is to see, eat, do, sleep and shop in the city. A guidebook will be based on highlights by necessity. Also, one of the major attractions in this compact, walkable place is a bit of aimless wandering, a bit of "let's see what's down here" kind of strolling. Love historic architecture? You can stroll the streets and alleys for days and never get bored. A guidebook isn't... 4/5 Jon L. Albee "Faulkner Wannabe" (Houston, TX) - See all my reviews, January 2, 2014

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
