Robinson first wrote about her life growing up on Daufuskie Island-off South Carolina and the setting for Pat Conroy's memoir The Water Is Wide-in Gullah Home Cooking the Daufuskie Way. Isolated from the mainland until fairly recently, the island was, as historian Jessica Harris writes in her foreword, a "cultural microclimate where the traditions of times past were kept alive". Along with down-home recipes ranging from Momma's Cracking Muffins to Country Fried Fish with Grits, Robinson includes more reminiscences and anecdotes about her extended family-she was one of 12 children-as well as a chapter on Gullah folk beliefs and home remedies of all sorts. For area libraries and other collections on regional American cooking.
