Living, learning, and teaching on a South Carolina sea island.
What happens when two naive, newly-minted teachers go off to teach on a barrier island without a bridge?
Living on an island where just getting groceries can depend on the tide, newlyweds Jim and Carol Alberto started teaching students in the small wooden schoolhouse on Daufuskie Island, South Carolina.
They soon discovered that the kids were well adapted to island existence but unprepared for classroom learning.
Little did the Albertos know how much they, too, would learn during their nine-year adventure, especially when it came to survival skills.
Throw away those college diplomas … the real education was about to begin!
