There's a lot more to the Grand Strand than just sun and surf. How about buried treasure, ancient civilizations, shipwrecks, and ghosts? In Tales along the Grand Strand of South Carolina, Blanche Floyd relates stories like the failed Spanish settlement attempt in 1526, Blackbeard's lost treasure, the vast wealth of Southern rice planters, the peculiar Hurl Rocks, the mysterious disappearance of Aaron Burr's daughter, the ghostly apparition that wanders through Murrells Inlet, the wreck of the Freeda A. Wyley, beautiful Brookgreen Gardens, the German POW camp in Myrtle Beach, and the awful force of Hurricane Hugo. This is the folklore, unusual history, and culture of the beach from a master storyteller.
