And I'm Glad: An Oral History of Edisto Island explores the island's history through the eyes and in the voices of two Edisto farmers, Sam Gadsden and Bubberson Brown, who grew up, labored, raised families, and made their lives on the island. These narratives, tracing the arrival of the first black pioneers, the subsequent slave culture during the 1800s, the difficulties of Reconstruction, to the Edisto of the twentieth century, document both the African-American legacy of the island and the personal struggles of two black men. Overcoming the unpredictability of the Lowcountry's weather, such as the historic Hurricane of 1893 and subsequent storms, the hardships of Depression-era America, and the double standards of a pre-Civil Rights South, Gadsden and Brown detail triumphant lives full of service, hard work, good humor, and faith.

This is a book that the tour guide on Edisto Island suggested. She told a couple of stories from it, so I knew what to expect, and it is excellent.

I grew up on Edisto Island and this is one of several books which will give a visitor an understanding of this mystical island.

Nick Lindsay's poetic and scholarly collection of interviews, accompanied by Julia Cart's fine black and white photographs, offer a rare glimpse into the African American history and spirit of the last undeveloped barrier island in South Carolina. "In wildness is the preservation of the world" said Henry David Thoreau, and many of us who live on this place believe this truth. Edisto Island, an hour south of Charleston, is one of the Sea Islands, now accessible by bridge. It was known in antebellum days for producing the rare and luxurious commodity, Sea Island Cotton, on land worked by slaves. For 150 years the island's population would be nearly 90% African American. They were the Gullah People, whose language reflected the song sounds of a creole mix of African and English. The title of the book refers to the refrain of a song, sung in one of the Black churches. The song tells all the truths of a life lived in slavery, but the refrain says "AND I'm Glad" - a conclusion serving to nurture a tender heart, a way to deal with such reality. One island native was asked after the devastating hurricane of 1893, how she was doing. She answered, "Ohhh, didn't lose anything but me house!" Nick Lindsay, in his eighties now, and with his lovely wife, can still be found on Sundays in church on the island. He is a rare and wise man. This book tells of the underglimmer of this place, what Paradise really is (one's attitude) and is also about another form of slavery: "money slavery"..."Slavery is a form of coerced labor: he has the gun and you do not: this is gun slavery. When you must turn aside from your true calling because some person has money and you do not: this in money slavery." Mythologist Joseph Campbell spoke of "Finding Your Bliss." This book offers such insight and is an invaluable read.

I live in Charleston and am very familiar with Edisto Island, having visited there many times. However I found the history as told in this book so fascinating that I could not put it down. Had to read it to research the family tree of the Brown family for "heirs" property. Interestingly, most of this property on which the Brown family lived is now for sale if anyone is interested.

We found this book in a gullah eatery while visiting the island last summer. And I'm glad we bought it. I relish learning in depth about the places we visit and this book gives an excellant history. There are so many surprising facts I learned about the island and its people. With all the changes in Edisto (and the world in general) the book preserves the history of the island in a way that makes one want to travel back to the days of its paradise.

Having recently stayed on Edisto I found this book to give a rich and colorful view of the history of the island as told by one White farmer and a Gullah man. I found "And I'm Glad," to be entertaining and enlightening with some very good storytelling and wonderful photographs. Highly recommended for anyone visiting Edisto, those interested in the Low Country and southeastern folklore generally.
