Author Ned Brown kicks off the Good Life series with the story about what makes Charleston, South Carolina so desirable to its residents and the five million visitors who seek it out each year. This stunning coffee-table book features photographs by Gately Williams, whose work is regularly featured in Garden & Gun, Coastal Living, and other publications.
With his signature ease, Brown profiles more than fifty "interesting Charlestonians, doing interesting things in a beautiful place." Charleston: A Good Life highlights native Charlestonians and those who have made the southern Holy City their home during the past two decades. Some are wealthy, many not, but all enjoy the richness of a place that has been voted the best small city in the world by Travel + Leisure magazine.
Ideal for fans of legendary photographer Slim Aarons, this project boasts the support of the Slim Aarons Estate and will include a foreword written by Slim's daughter, Mary Aarons.
