Leisure, Plantations, and the Making of New South investigates the social, architectural, and environmental history of sporting plantations in the South Carolina lowcountry and the Red Hills region of southeast Georgia and northern Florida. Although plantations figure prominently in histories of the post-emancipation South, historians have paid little attention to the redevelopment of plantations for non-agricultural use. By examining the two largest concentrations of sporting plantations on the south Atlantic coast, this collection explores questions about historical memory of slavery, race relations, material culture, and the environment during the first half of the twentieth century.

This collection of seven essays raises important questions about the post-reconstruction and 20th-century South . . . The collective contribution is to highlight the development of northern-owned hunting estates in coastal Carolina and Georgia and in the red hills of southwestern Georgia and the northern Florida panhandle. The estates were at once leisure retreats and illustrations of the early 20th-century approaches to conservation (hunting and game laws often ran counter to local economic needs) or interracial relations (work-based relationships on the estates reinforced the position of African Americans in the world of southern tenancy even as the estate owners were dependent on tenants for expertise as guides). The essays are strongest in giving detail to the patterns of estate development (architecture, purchasing, or the estates as tourist destinations) and in outlining the social or hunting activities of the owners, residents, and hunters. While the essays also demonstrate the influence of estate owners in the politics of the 20th-century South, there are potentially rewarding lines of inquiry into politics that are left unexplored. . . .Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above. * CHOICE * Although the basic interpretive contours in place a quarter century ago regarding the New South are still visible, scholars over the past twenty-five years have filled in and added texture to virtually every aspect of the New South story. This is the case whether we are speaking of the New Souths origins, content, trajectory, or meaning. Leisure, Plantations, and the Making of a New South, an important new collection of essays, at once encapsulates and punctuates these points. Taken together, the essays included in the volume enable us to situate, contextualize, and interpret the evolution of sporting plantations in the two subareas studied as well as gain insights into other related topics such as travel and tourism in the South. That the authors of the essays are attuned to the racial and class dimensions of the stories they tellto the power asymmetries in the region, as it wereand to the environmental dimensions of the complexes about which they write adds further value. The two great virtues of this volume are its close examination of two of the most famous sites of such sporting plantations the South Carolina (and Georgia) low country and the Red Hills region of southwest Georgia and northern Floridaand its sophisticated handling of the same. In sum, the extremely well-researched and documented essays in this volume contribute significantly to the evolving literature on the subjects at hand. * Environmental History * Examining plantations wealthy Northerners bought as hunting retreatssites ripe for multiple analytical lensesthis essay collection aptly demonstrates the array of work that the field can encompass. This book brings together research by seven scholars to tell the story of southern cotton and rice regions that became vacation spots around 1900. . . .When compounded with the attention given to the built environment, architectural design, and preservation, the breadth within this collection is impressive. While useful for many scholars of consumer culture, environment, and agriculture, Leisure, Plantations, and the Making of a New South will be of particular interest to students of the twentieth-century South for its sketches of the transformations of the plantation in the industrial age. In the end, this work illustrates one remarkable chapter in the metamorphosis of the southern land-scape. * Agricultural History * This history is of considerable importance in variety of areas, including waterfowl conservation; cutting-edge research connected with bobwhite quail; survival of traditional rice plantation culture; promulgation of game regulations and wildlife management; and a visible, viable link with a sporting world we have largely lost. Add to that preservation of va
