Our speaker Tuesday 3/16/2016 was William Walker, author of “Down The Little Pee Dee”, Paddling South Carolina’s Legendary Blackwater River. His book records the events of the trip made by the author and his friend and cousin, naturalist L.L. Gaddy. The two paddled the Little Pee Dee from its headwaters at Red Bluff Lake in Marlboro County, S.C., to the junction with the Great Pee Dee River near the Atlantic Ocean. Walker’s entertaining and often deeply personal narrative intertwines the history of the Little Pee Dee—and his family’s history—with the two paddlers’ adventures on the river including conversations with residents and visitors along the way. A very interesting story as was evidenced by the long line of Rotarians who, having purchased the book, waited to have it autographed!
