TALES FROM GEORGIA'S GNAT LINE is about the South--the Deep South; Larry Walkers part of the world. Its about good people, and some not so good. Its about a part of the United States that was, and is, somewhat different from the rest. And its about cotton, because in many ways cotton caused Southerners to do some of the things that otherwise good people would not have done. Its never been easy to be a Southerner, black or white. But its worth holding on to, and we must. Walker promises to do his part. He uses yall and does it often. Its not just the way he speaks, but the way he thinks, yall means everyone. Yes, the road is long and narrow. Its wider down in the South than it used to be, and it is getting wider all the time, but there have been recent problems which will need to be addressed. We cant afford to fight the Civil War again--either here in the South or elsewhere in this country. This book is about the South of the past, the present, and, if read carefully, of the future.

His fathers death prompted him to preserve his family memories for his descendents, but the writing quickly grew into a life essay on farm life, Southern cooking, dogs, small-town life in the 1950s, and the demise of our current culture. The book is written in the authors voice and evokes feelings of Sams, Grizzard, and Rooney. He believes our culture is being slowly destroyed from within by small dogs, cats, bad barbecue, kudzu, fat-free ice cream, cell phones, e-mail, the Internet, childproof lids, hard plastic security packaging, iPods, video players in automobiles, kids not being raised right, rudeness, fast food, moms who dont cook, high school graduates who cant read, long-winded preachers, the disappearance of real Southern cooking, and the popularity of instant grits, Diet Pepsi, and unsweetened tea. His familys history is a goldmine of great food, quirky characters, outlandish actions, and bodacious behavior; he has mined it shamelessly and offers no apologies.

A Southern woman's view of life is often formed not only by experiences within her family, but without as well. Â The nostalgic reflections of living in small town south Georgia, with four younger brothers, produced a "colorful" life for author Johnnie W. Lewis. Â As the only daughter of a Naval Chief Petty Officer, she reflects, with humor, on the many and varied aspects of her life, living both above AND below the Gnat Line! Stories abound in this almost-autobiographical memoir of Johnnie's life. Stories about brothers, children, "life" experiences, trials and tribulations, but all are told with her tongue firmly planted in her cheek, so that if you hold your head sideways as you read them, they almost sound believable!!

The focus of Conquistador's Wake is a decade-long archaeological project undertaken at a place now known as the Glass Site, located in Telfair County, Georgia. This spot, near the town of McRae, Georgia, offers clues that place Hernando de Soto in Georgia via a different route than previously thought by historians and archaeologists. Rare glass beads--some of the only examples found outside Florida--are among the rich body of evidence signaling Spanish interaction with the Native Americans along the Ocmulgee River. An unusual number and variety of metal and glass artifacts, identified by their distinct patterns and limited production, are the ?calling cards? of Soto and other early explorers. As a meditation on both the production of knowledge and the implications of findings at the Glass Site, Conquistador's Wake challenges conventional wisdom surrounding the path of Soto through Georgia and casts new light on the nature of Native American societies then residing in southern Georgia. It also provides an insider's view of how archaeology works and why it matters. Through his research, Dennis Blanton sets out to explain the outcome of one of Georgia's, and the region's, most important archaeological projects of recent years. He tells at the same time a highly personal story, from the perspective of the lead archaeologist, about the realities of the research process, from initial problem formulation to the demands of fieldwork, the collaborative process, data interpretation, and scholarly tribalism.

“Bold and ingenious” stories about the dark heart of America by the acclaimed Whiting Award–winning author (The New York Times Book Review). “Feverish, psychotropic, bold, mesmerizing, painful, Fox Tooth Heart is full of stories about people living on the margins of society, characters born into dark circumstances, or . . . driven there by their own obsessions and addictions” (Huffington Post)—murderers, loners, addicts, neurotics and outcasts stumbling side-by-side with “the down-and-out heroes of George Saunders or John Updike, captured just before their fall” (Vice.com). In this “achingly visceral . . . masterpiece” McManus ventures from trailers hidden in deep Southern woods to an Arkansas ranch converted into an elephant refuge to a Georgia tent community of sex offenders to a Kentucky band of teenage Satanists. His lost-soul men, women, and children reel precariously between common anxiety and drug-enhanced paranoia, sober reality and fearsome hallucination (The Atlanta Journal-Constitution). “Powered by radiant prose” (Vanity Fair), these nine “eccentric . . . wildly inventive” (Publishers Weekly) stories of twisted humor and pathos re-establish McManus as one of the most bracing voices of our time.
