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 is one of the most charming cities in the US, and it is fitting that Diana Hollingsworth Gessler has written a delightfully charming book about the Holy City. "Very Charleston" is a small book, but big on snippets of Charleston. It is also wonderfully illustrated by Gessler with watercolors. This 159 page book is packed with a myriad of entertaining tidbits. It includes historical facts, famous festivals, Charleston vocabulary, places of interest, interesting characters (past and present), famous restaurants, some traditional recipes and LOTS of trivia. It also touches on such diverse topics as The Civil War, The Citadel, Slavery, making indigo, architectural details and places to shop.Very Charleston is the perfect book for a new visitor to Charleston. There are a few minor inaccuracies (for example, there are more than 3 zones for carriage tours). But these do not detract from the book. However, a visitor seeking a more in-depth look at the Holy... 4/5 Cynthia K. Robertson (beverly, new jersey USA) - See all my reviews, January 28, 2004

    WONDERFUL BOOK!!!!

    0 5/5 MOM2HKH "MOM2HKH" (Hershey, PA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Very Charleston: A Celebration of History, Culture, and Lowcountry Charm (Hardcover) My mother-in-law gave us this book before our move to Charleston, SC. My own family came to visit and while driving around downtown with the book it felt like a tour of our very own. The next day we did in fact go on a real Charleston tour and they restated many of the interesting facts of Charleston found within the book! The book is not only a wealth of information, but also a beautifully illustrated book!!! I LOVE THIS BOOK!!! :) I recommend it to anyone looking to learn more about Charleston! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 8, 2005

    Charleston

    Charleston is yet another one of Alexandra Ripley's historical fiction novels. The book begins during the middle of the Civil War and continues on towards 1898. The story surrounds on the Charlestonians, all whom are related to each other somehow or the other. The Tradds, the family that it is focused on, is made up of Mary Tradd, a brainless beauty as the mother; Pinckney Tradd, the new head of the family since the father died during the war, he's worried about how he can bring money in for the family; Stuart Tradd, a young boy not even in his teens during the war, but decides that he's going to defeat the Yankees no matter what; and Lizzie Tradd, the youngest, who isn't quite like any other girl after the war.This book describes the lives of the Tradd family, and the struggles of their attempts to earn enough the support the family. The animosity towards the Yankees and other "New People" are expressed with the Charlestonian's way of "politing them to death."Although the... 4/5 "lmarmarmar" - See all my reviews This review is from: Charleston (Mass Market Paperback) Boy, was this book ever hard to track down!

From sending young men off to fight their brothers,to facing the adversity of Reconstruction, to the struggle between between races and classes, Ripley absolutely captures the latter part of a tumultuous century.Leading us on this journey is the novel's heroine, Elizabeth Tradd, raised in wealth and finery until the Civil War leaves her family bordering on poverty.

I have been a HUGE Gone with the Wind fan since I was a teenager, but to compare these two books is unfair, I think. They both take place in the South around the time of Civil War, but the simliarities stop there. Scarlett, the heroine of GWTW, is selfish, greedy and manipulative (dont get me wrong, I love her for it, even try to emulate her at times) but facts are facts. Scarlett had to "lie, steal, cheat or kill" to survive after the war, and we celebrate her for that. Elizabeth Tradd, Margaret Tradd, Julia Ashley and Lucy Anson, the main "ladies" in this book are everything we love about true heroines. Julia Ashley, unmarried spenster who is truely the head of the family, is strong, smart, calculating and at times, hard. She amazingly saves the Ashley Plantation from certain ruin, even as the Yankees are at her front door. Margaret Tradd, she is the...

It does change a little in the middle which takes some listening to, to keep in step with the Chrleston dance.
