I'm not blessed like the few who are natives of Beaufort, or lived there for most of their lives, but Helsley's book sure helps one appreciate why native Beaufortonians would have a certain pride about their county and town.

I've been to Beaufort (and plan to go back many times) and it is a silent oasis in the Low Country. Perhaps one of the best-kept secrets on the East Coast. The little town has a charm all its own. What a wonderful place.

I read Helsley's book mainly for the history up to 1899. I was not disappointed. There are a lot of details that have whetted my appetite to keep digging.

I appreciate the quality of paper the book is printed on. The only real criticism I have is that the book could use some maps. Besides that, sit back and enjoy the wonderful stories going back to the 16th century and have fun looking through some very rare and interesting photographs liberally sprinkled throughout the text.

For some decent maps the reader will have to pick up a copy of Beaufort, South Carolina: Pages from the Past (American Chronicles). ( )
