GEORGIA: Unfinished State by Hal Steed

GEORGIA: Unfinished State

Email this review


Alert, alive, this informal survey of Georgia, past and present, manners and customs. The trivial and the consequential, the picturesque, the historic, the human in rapid succession. Duels, towns, farms, plantations, the red hills and the Okefenores swamp, cotton and peaches, Fanny Kemble of yesterday and Margaret Mitchell of today, mountain schools and the University of Georgia, the dialects and characteristic drawls, -- a miscellany of information, entertainingly presented, to give the motley character of the state. It reads well enough to justify its going beyond the local market.
