Words from a dear friend, fellow writer and Lowcountry legend
Wendy Nilsen Pollitzer is a journalist with a finger squarely on the pulse of the South Carolina Lowcountry, a place she has lived all her life. She has also been, at various times, a park manager, a park interpreter, a naturalist, a photographer, an editor and a producer for a local television station, all good places to feel that pulse. She is also charming, witty and damned fine company, be it juttering down a pot-holed Lowcountry dirt road or sipping a cool one at some dockside dive, philosophizing and watching the river flow.
Wendy is the author of two of Acadia’s Images of America local history books, Port Royal and Isle of Palms, her childhood home. And there are rumors of two more books on the way. Not sure of the subject matter, but I know Wendy Pollitzer and I know they will be good.
