Goose Creek lies with the county of Berkeley. This engrossing book, although extensively researched and well documented, is not an ordinary date-battle-times-places history. On the contrary, it brings the Goose Creek story to life through accounts of rebellious dissenters, witches and ghosts, pestilence, wild Indians and uprisings. The author weaves together the exploits of thrilling heros and the everyday problems of the common people who fought and loved and won and lost in a community that lived and died and lived again.
