5 of 5 A masterful book of art and history March 4, 2021
Reviewer: Betsy Reves Sidebottom from Charleston, SC  
As a daughter of a Charleston native, I am familiar with the beauty of Charleston, its history, as well as amazing local artists.  This book not only captures the beauty and history of Charleston in detail, but it dives in deep covering all of Alice Ravenel Huger Smith’s life, her work and family.  This book is a delight to browse through, a wonder to read in full and will be a favorite on our coffee table for years to come.
