The Water is Wide

(1972)
A non fiction book by

 
The island is nearly deserted, haunting, beautiful. Across a slip of ocean lies South Carolina. But for the handful of families on Yamacraw island, America is a world away. For years the people here lived proudly from the sea, but now its waters are not safe. Waste from industry threatens their very existence-unless, somehow, they can learn a new life. But they will learn nothing without someone to teach them, and their school has no teacher.

Here is PAT CONROY'S extraordinary drama based on his own experience-the true story of a man who gave a year of his life to an island and the new life its people gave him.
