"On a warm, humid, late summer evening, with a gentle southerly sea breeze from Wallace Creek protecting us from the mosquitoes, my father takes me on a little tour of 'home'. Once the Robert Fuller Plantation (also called Fuller Place) and later called the Yard Farm (in Gullah – 'de Ya’ad'), there is important history here that I want to capture."
So begins the
journey, guided by lifelong St. Helena Island native, Sonny Bishop. Through
this sensitive and introspective narrative, made rich by Sonny’s personal
stories and photographs from his large collection, readers are invited to
ponder the meaning of home, the importance of family, and the growth and change
that can come from challenges and adversity.
Marvel at the beauty, charm, and history of this place we call home.
