About This Show
Lowcountry author Mary Alice Monroe talks with Dr. Edgar about her new book, Last Light Over Carolina, and the challenges that face South Carolina shrimpers.
In Last Light Over Carolina, an otherwise ordinary day in a small shrimping village off the coast of South Carolina becomes a potentially tragic day--a boat has gone missing. The entire town rallies as all are mobilized to find the lost vessel. Throughout the course of one day, the story of Bud Morrison, the captain on board, and of Carolina, his wife, unfolds revealing the happier days of a once-thriving shrimping industry juxtaposed with the memories of their long term marriage.
