Pigs on the Patio

Book Summary

Liz Tucker's delightful memoir tells tales of her young, eccentric family at Limerick Plantation near Charleston, South Carolina. Besides the pigs, there were coons in the cupboards and cows in the cornfield, and a husband who believed duck hunting “was why we were put on this earth!”

About the Author

Liz Tucker describes herself as a deeply rooted “transplant” to the Lowcountry, one who moved from Louisville, Kentucky, in her youth. After she and her husband raised four children at Limerick Plantation in the wilds of Hell Hole Swamp, Liz ran a tour company, Creative Expeditions, which specialized in conducting heritage tours for museum groups, including the Smithsonian and the National Trust. It was at the urging of her tour participants that she committed her stories to paper. A grandmother of four, she currently has possums on her patio, which overlooks the tidal creeks and marshes near Edisto Island.

... a noticeably enthusiastic yet amusingly jaded expose of plantation life in rural South Carolina.
