This is the third collaboration of Baldwin (co-author with Genevieve "Sister" Peterkin of the beloved memoir, Heaven is a Beautiful Place) and Hill (founding director of the Village Museum in McClellanville). In the tradition of previous collections -- The Unpainted South and These Our Offerings -- Carolina Rambling shares a touching elegiac look at the Lowcountry's holy places -- from abandoned homes, disintegrating barns, tiny churches and forlorn cemeteries to the shrinking livelihoods of farms, cotton and shrimp. Word and image pictures of small town, rural South will fill your heart with joy and longing. The complementarity of Bud's photographs and Billy's poems is a match made in heaven. Nostalgia, beauty, grace and wit and with faults included: presented here is a vanishing South. Don't rush through this book. Ramble.
