"'Don't Want to see no more... like that:' Climate Change as a Factor in the Collapse of Lowcountry Rice Culture, 1893-1920," in Historical Climate Variability and Impacts in North America, eds. Lesley-Ann Dupigny-Giroux and Cary Mock, Springer, 2009.

In it I examine the series of hurricanes from the disastrous one in 1893 through 1920 that hit all or part of the rice kingdom of South Carolina and came at a particularly precarious moment for the rice industry and before federal help or insurance was sufficient to allow many plantations and rice mills to bounce back.
