Maypop: Tales from a Lowcountry Village

MaypopSelf-taught artist May Brailsford was a beloved figure in McClellanville, planting trees for future generations and presenting newlywed couples with her paintings of shrimp boats and magnolias. As a child in the 1880s and 1890s, she was brash and sassy, so prone to get in arguments that her classmates nicknamed her “Maypop.” When Brailsford died in 1971, she left behind a captivating account of her childhood in the village. Her granddaughter, artist Mary Ingalls Cote, has brought this story to life with twenty-five charming illustrations. Like the “Little House” books of Laura Ingalls Wilder, May: Tales from a Lowcountry Village is a story that will appeal to all ages. The McClellanville Arts Council, in partnership with Home House Press, will publish May just in time for the holidays as a full-color paperback.
An exhibit of Mary Ingalls Cote’s original illustrations and paintings by May Brailsford will open in our gallery on December 6, 2013, from 5 to 9 p.m. and be on display until March 1, 2014.

Copies of the Book “Maypop” and commemorative Redbuds will be available for purchase.

Copies of the Maypop book are $20 plus shipping & handling

The Unpainted South

Carolina’s Vanishing World

Photographs by Selden B. Hill  Songs and Poems by William P. Baldwin

Abandoned farmhouses stand withered and empty among clumps of chinaberry trees in fields of broom straw throughout rural South Carolina. Leaning tobacco barns are all that remain of lucrative farm allotments gone up in smoke. Boarded up redbrick towns with rusted rails and broken-down cotton gins are silhouettes of another era. Clapboard general stores that provided families with all they needed are few and hard to find. This book of photos, poetry and song offers remarkable glimpses of fast-vanishing world. The haunting images and powerful verse featured are a unique celebration of The Unpainted South.

$28.95

Upheaval in Charleston

Earthquake and Murder on the Eve of Jim Crow

Susan Millar Williams and Stephen G. Hoffius

On August 31, 1886, a massive earthquake centered near Charleston sent shock waves as far north as Maine, down into Florida, and west to the Mississippi River. Weaving together the emotionally charged stories of Confederate veterans and former slaves, McClellanville resident Susan Millar Williams and Charlestonian Stephen G. Hoffius portray a South where whites and blacks struggled to determine how they would coexist a generation after the end of the Civil War.

This is also the story of Francis Warrington Dawson, a British expatriate drawn to the South by the romance of the Confederacy. As editor of Charleston’s News and Courier, Dawson walked a lonely and dangerous path, risking his life and reputation to find common ground between the races. Hailed as a hero in the aftermath of the earthquake, Dawson was denounced by white supremacists and murdered less than three years after the disaster. His killer was acquitted after a sensational trial that unmasked a Charleston underworld of decadence and corruption.
