Susan Pringle Frost’s legacy is pervasive in Charleston, South Carolina. Millions of tourists have strolled through the city’ preserved neighborhoods, admiring their elegance and charm. As a founder of and force in the early preservation movement, Frost contributed mightily to making Charleston what it is today. Sidney R. Bland’s biography of Frost is a welcome addition to the history of modern Charleston and South Carolina. Indeed, Bland’s book belongs to Walter J. Fraser’s Charleston! Charleston! as an essential guide to the modern history of the city.
