June 2007

I grew up in Walterboro in the middle of the 50s with the Gullah coming to town every Friday and Saturaday for market to the lot next to my daddy's car lot. I grew up with two men of the culture working for dad and I was raised at home by a woman who to me was like Essie Mae was to Jeffrey. Eloise gave me the guidance that has served me all my life in the treatment of others regardless of how they differ from me. Today I speak with the accent and when questioned about my accent I tell them it is my native language and English is my second language. They do not understand but hey I love that language as I still do the people who speak it daily.

Nicole, although I have, as of yet, been unable to find a moment to start your book, I am going to make it a priority after reading the article written about you in the Island Packet. I am so proud to call you a fellow native islander. I teared up as you recalled Sue West and mentioned many teachers that I too consider mentors. I am so proud of you! I never knew all of the unique gifts this little island had given me until recently.I read an article on Mary Frazier and realized that so many of the things I recalled so fondly about my childhood were her creation. The playgrounds and the Montessori to name two. I realize how truly blessed we are to call Hilton Head Island home. Thank you for your story.

Nicole,
I am wife and mother of four who works part-time but aspires to become an author in the near future. (I am constantly writing but not finishing.) I just want to let you know how your career inspires me so. (If I sound familiar, I have sent a comment before.) I have not read Spirit of Sweetgrass yet--I am currently working on my Master's degree with an emphasis in English and having to read quite a bit. Right now I am taking Southern Lit so your book is probably "right down my alley." But from visits to your website and blog, you appear to be so professional and I admire how your career is progressing. May God continue to bless you.

Dear Nicole,
The Spirit of Sweetgrass is by all means one of the best books I've read in ages. I hated for it to end. It was a beautiful story. Keep up the good work...you are awesome!

I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed reading The Spirit if Sweetgrass. The last time I was in Charleston I vowed that I would not go home without a unique basket and lo and behold, I found it. The one that I bought was created by Annie Scott of Mt. Pleasant. She lives on Freeman Scott Rd. I was wondering if my Annie was the same Annie Scott that you mention in the Acknowledgements...the Annie Scott from Boone Hall.

I look forward to hearing from you and reading your next book.

Dear Nicole,
I was at the Conway Library meeting last night (asked about religious affiliation, and with my friend Amber, assured you grey could be cared for). I began your book when I went to bed, and could not put it down until I was too tired to focus. I was up at 6:00 to finish it, which I did about an hour ago. I just had to let you know that I am looking forward to the next book and hope that you will come back to our group in Conway for another presentation. Thank you for a delightful story. Kathy
