The Water Is Wide

The Water Is Wide Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

The island is nearly deserted, haunting, beautiful. Across a slip of ocean lies South Carolina. But for the handful of families on Yamacraw island, America is a world away. For years the people here lived proudly from the sea, but now its waters are not safe. Waste from industry threatens their very existence ? unless, somehow, they can learn a new life. But they will learn nothing without someone to teach them, and their school has no teacher.

Synopsis:

Based on the author's experiences teaching for two years on the island of Yamacraw off the South Carolina coast, "The Water Is Wide" is the basis for the feature film "Conrack," starring John Voight.
