Starting in 1974, Jim Alberto and his wife, Carol, taught school at the Mary Field Elementary School for nine years. Little did they know that Jims meeting with Pat Conroy in 1973 would play such an important role in their careers. Jim and Carol experienced Daufuskie Island life firsthand when they moved out to this South Carolina barrier island to teach the local children. From navigating weekly boat rides to the mainland for groceries to learning to avoid dangerously close encounters with local wildlife, these teachers had no idea how much they would learn from the island and the people who call it home.  

This fascinating book tells a rare, unvarnished, important story of a committed teacher. Jim Albertos pivotal experiences while teaching at the two-room school on Daufuskie Island with wife Carol. It is an extraordinary example of courage, caring, and perseverance. From his depiction of the Islands distinct smell in the first chapter to his deep exhale to contentment in the last chapter, Jims detailed account will enthrall readers on every page.Emory S. Campbell, Gullah cultural historian

In 1973, Jim Alberto graduated from the University of South Carolina and his long love affair with the Lowcountry and his wife Carol commenced. After his nine-year stint teaching on secluded Daufuskie Island, he finished his teaching career on the mainland, sharing his passion for history with his many students and with anyone else who was willing to listen. Jim and Carol now reside on Hilton Head Island.
