by Alice Ravenel Huger Smith

In the Heron book, rather than enchanting her readers with a fantasy tale, she amuses and awes us by telling the real story of the myriad long-legged wading birds who called the Lowcountry home in 1912 and were nearly wiped out by the plume trade. With a mysterious and lush landscape as her backdrop, Ms. Smith paints the herons in all their beautiful, funny and fantastic peculiarities. A century later, these gorgeous creatures still grace our coast, thanks in part to Alice Smith and her fellow Charleston Renaissance artists, who helped us to finally see and understand.”
