Book summary

The island is nearly deserted, haunting, beautiful. Across a slip of ocean lies South Carolina. But for the handful of families on Yamacraw island, America is a world away. For years the people here lived proudly from the sea, but now its waters are not safe. Waste from industry threatens their very existence  unless, somehow, they can learn a new life. But they will learn nothing without someone to teach them, and their school has no teacher. [via]
