Brief Synopsis: The author of 'Tangled Waters' and 'A Candle in the Mist'
has written from first-hand knowledge a story describing the impulsive
gaiety, unspoiled humor, simple philosophy, and serious purpose of native
people on the sea-islands.
Long Synopsis: Accustomed to the luxuries of a Minneapolis high school,
Harriet Freeman, a sixteen-year-old Negro girl, goes to live with her
mysterious great-grandmother on an enchanting island off the coast of South
Carolina. Harriet is at first shocked and dismayed by the poverty-stricken,
lethargic life on the island. Adjustment is difficult, but Granny help, and
so does Richard Corwin, an intelligent Negro boy studying to be an
agricultural expert. It is an inspiring story, spliced with excitement,
myster, and romance.
Comments: I've gone through and fixed most of the spelling errors; I've also
stripped the running headers and added the page numbers. The only major work
needed is the bolding of the headers. For more info, contact me at
