The Water is Wide by Pat Conroy

Pat Conroy spent a year living and teaching on a  tiny isolated Yamacraw Island of the coast of South Carolina in 1969. In the book The Water is Wide, Conroy writes a compelling account of himself as young idealistic teacher attempting to teach on an island that suffers from educational and ecological neglect.  This is a powerful story about the people living in isolation from the rest of the world on Yamacraw Island. This is a beautiful and insightful story!
