I just finished listening to South Carolina: A History by Walter Edgar. In a way, historical books, such as this, are boring and fascinating simultaneously. The book goes in to great detail on the early history of the Palmetto State and the efforts to carve out a settlement in the American wilderness. It covers the social, economic and political aspects of the colonization of the new world.
This audiobook was read by the author, which added to the listening experience. Reading it has helped me gain an appreciation for the people and heritage of South Carolina.
