The journal documents the mammal collecting of C. O. Handley in South Carolina, July 1989 - July 1990. He states that he was out to collect cryptotis to redescribe the shrews named by John Bachman in 1837 through the coastal lowlands near Charleston. He was assisted by Merrill Varn. His entries are dated and headed with location / route (combination of town, state). They describe travel details (accommodations, routes, distances, meals), temperature and weather, flora and fauna (birds and mammals) observed, daily work and time of day, and weather.
