Hurricane Hugo caused a mess, no doubt, but it came nothing close to destroying 75% of the homes in the "Historic District." First of all, Charleston has many, not one, historic districts. And few, if any, buildings of record were destroyed by the hurricane.
He constantly refers to St. Augustine as "reconstructed," which is a serious misrepresentation. One gets the image of Disney or of an outdoor museum, when St. Augustine is a living, working city with many original structures intact.
The sights and listings are good enough, and the itineraries are pretty thorough, but I have to question the credibility of a book that makes these kind of sweeping, dramatic statements. Otherwise, I would say that the recommendations are pretty good, leaning more toward what I would call "touristy" rather than more profoundly authentic.
One last thing, and something that is a problem common to many Charleston/Savannah travel guides. These guides spread Charleston and Savannah, two cities that deserve a separate travel guide EACH, far too thin by adding coverage of places like Hilton Head and Myrtle Beach. Perhaps that sells more books. Perhaps not, because a good guide to Charleston could fill 300 pages alone. Same with Savannah.
My recommendation is that you buy the Moon Guide by Jim Morekis.
