“What in the world were they thinking?” Looking back on the early 1950s on Hilton Head Island, Avary Hack Doubleday has asked herself this question. Her parents Fred and Billie Hack loaded their belongings—and two young children—onto a boat and moved to this barrier island in June of 1950. Amenities on the Island did not include electricity, telephones, a doctor, or regularly scheduled ferry service to the mainland. There was only one paved road and children attended a one-room school—with an outhouse.

Daughter of the Dawn takes you to a remote island—not so long ago—where, as barefoot children, Avary and her brothers played in the creek at Honey Horn Plantation, searched for deer and alligator eyes reflecting in the dark, collected shells on deserted beaches, and watched loggerhead sea turtles lay their rubbery eggs in the dunes.

Through a child’s eyes, Avary describes private hunting clubs on the Island, evacuating for a hurricane, and lessons learned in a one-room school. As Avary paints her memories, she reveals the characters of her parents which led them to this adventure and which molded her own character.
