A History of Georgia

Creator: Kenneth Coleman | History - 1991

For this new edition, available in paperback for the first time, A History of Georgia has been revised to bring the work up through the events of the 1980s.

Publisher: University of Georgia Press

About this book
First published in 1977, A History of Georgia has become the standard history of the state. Documenting events from the earliest discoveries by the Spanish to the rapid changes the state has undergone with the civil rights era, the book gives broad coverage to the state's social, political, economic, and cultural history. This work details Georgia's development from past to present, including the early Cherokee land disputes, the state's secession from the Union, cotton's reign, Reconstruction, the Bourbon era, the effects of the New Deal, Martin Luther King, Jr., the fall of the county-unit system, and Jimmy Carter's election to the presidency. Also noted are the often-overlooked contributions of Indians, blacks, and women. Each imparting his own special knowledge and understanding of a particular period in the state's history, the authors bring into focus the personalities and events that made Georgia what it is today. For this new edition, available in paperback for the first time, A History of Georgia has been revised to bring the work up through the events of the 1980s. The bibliographies for each section and the appendixes have also been updated to include relevant scholarship from the last decade.

Georgia, A Novel of Georgia O'Keeffe

Creator: Dawn Tripp | Fiction - 2016-02-09

This is not a love story. If it were, we would have the same story. But he has his, and I have mine.

Publisher: Random House

About this book
NATIONAL BESTSELLER • In a dazzling work of historical fiction in the vein of Nancy Horan’s Loving Frank, Dawn Tripp brings to life Georgia O’Keeffe, her love affair with photographer Alfred Stieglitz, and her quest to become an independent artist. This is not a love story. If it were, we would have the same story. But he has his, and I have mine. In 1916, Georgia O’Keeffe is a young, unknown art teacher when she travels to New York to meet Stieglitz, the famed photographer and art dealer, who has discovered O’Keeffe’s work and exhibits it in his gallery. Their connection is instantaneous. O’Keeffe is quickly drawn into Stieglitz’s sophisticated world, becoming his mistress, protégé, and muse, as their attraction deepens into an intense and tempestuous relationship and his photographs of her, both clothed and nude, create a sensation. Yet as her own creative force develops, Georgia begins to push back against what critics and others are saying about her and her art. And soon she must make difficult choices to live a life she believes in.A breathtaking work of the imagination, Georgia is the story of a passionate young woman, her search for love and artistic freedom, the sacrifices she will face, and the bold vision that will make her a legend.Praise for Georgia“Complex and original . . . Georgia conveys O’Keeffe’s joys and disappointments, rendering both the woman and the artist with keenness and consideration.”—The New York Times Book Review“As magical and provocative as O’Keeffe’s lush paintings of flowers that upended the art world in the 1920s . . . Tripp inhabits Georgia’s psyche so deeply that the reader can practically feel the paintbrush in hand as she creates her abstract paintings and New Mexico landscapes. . . . Evocative from the first page to the last, Tripp’s Georgia is a romantic yet realistic exploration of the sacrifices one of the foremost artists of the twentieth century made for love.”—USA Today  “Sexually charged . . . insightful . . . Dawn Tripp humanizes an artist who is seen in biographies as more icon than woman. Her sensuous novel is as finely rendered as an O’Keeffe painting.”—The Denver Post“A vivid work forged from the actual events of O’Keeffe’s life . . . [Tripp] imbues the novel with a protagonist who forces the reader to consider the breadth of O’Keeffe’s talent, business savvy, courage and wanderlust. . . . [She] is vividly alive as she grapples with success, fame, integrity, love and family.”—Salon “Masterful . . . The book is a lovely portrayal of an iconic artist who is independent and multidimensional. Tripp’s O’Keeffe is a woman hoping to break free of conventional definitions of art, life and gender, as well as a woman of deep passion and love.”—Milwaukee Journal Sentinel “O’Keeffe blazes across the pages in Tripp’s tour de force about this indomitable woman. . . . Tripp has hit her stride here, bringing to life one of the most remarkable artists of the twentieth century with veracity, heart, and panache.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)“I devoured this dazzling novel about an American icon. Dawn Tripp brings Georgia O’Keeffe so fully to life on every page and, with great wisdom, examines the very nature of love, longing, femininity, and art.”—J. Courtney Sullivan, New York Times bestselling author of Maine and The EngagementsFrom the Hardcover edition.

    A convincing imagining of Georgia O'Keffe's life

    What Dawn Tripp has done is very difficult to do on many levels. One is to dare to assume the voice of one of the most iconic Americans of the 20th century. She committed to a voice and carried it through, with only the most momentary wobbles. Secondly, the first person is often chosen for the joys of creating the 'unreliable narrator', but Tripp picks a different route creating a woman who has her egoism, but also a lot of insight about herself and the man she married. Thirdly, this version of O'Keffe is complex - certainly not entirely likable, sometimes unkind and even cruel, but a believable mix of the good and bad angels we carry within us. Fourthly, she's written at some length about what she imagines painting felt like for O'Keffe in a convincing enough way that you (or at least I) got an inkling of what moved her to paint so compulsively. Fifthly, she's captured how a marriage can go sour, then yo-yo back repeatedly, each time with less spring, until an accommodation is... 5/5 PracAdemic (Boston, MA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    you feel like you are inside her head

    5/5 bookjunkie - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Georgia: A Novel of Georgia O'Keeffe (Kindle Edition) I've been looking for a historical novel on Georgia O'Keefe for several years so was really excited to see this book. I've been to Ghost Ranch in Abiquiu several times, did a program on her paintings and life, have seen her house and photographed her "Jacob's tree" and her cow skulls at Ghost Ranch and have been to her museum in Santa Fe so I had a little knowledge about her life but this book really brings her to life. She was so far ahead of her time......very strong, very strong willed. In reading this book, you feel like you are inside her head, it's just very powerful......and she had such a tumultous relationship with Alfred Steigleitz. I was thoroughly captivated by this book.

    I’ve read nearly every book out there about Georgia O’Keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz. This one is a terrific read. Dawn Tripp did a remarkable job of inhabiting Georgia’s head, a herculean task. I’m recommending this novel to many friends and artist-colleagues. In my humble opinion, Tripp deserves a Pulitzer for this superb piece of fiction. In almost every conceivable way, Tripp achieved authenticity in her effort to reveal the soul of the person O’Keeffe and the artist O’Keeffe. Tripp clearly is in love with her subject. Georgia O’Keeffe the person, that is. Tripp chose to get inside the head and the heart of The Legend to compose a gripping story. She succeeded. I found myself wishing, however, that Tripp wasn’t so awestruck and adoring of her subject, at times. A bit less adulation and more introspection might have helped Tripp produce an even better novel.I also kept wanting Tripp to understand more fully what... 5/5 susan - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    5/5 HollyWK - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Totally Bamboo State Cutting & Serving Board, Alaska, 100% Bamboo Board for Cooking and Entertaining (Kitchen) I ordered two cutting boards - one Texas and one Alaska. The Alaska board is missing South East Alaska, but otherwise they are both great. I am from Texas and my husband is from Alaska so I hung them up in our kitchen together. He says there is a problem with the sizing. I have included a picture of what they look like and another of what he says they should look lie., August 9, 2015

    5/5 hammieo - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Totally Bamboo State Cutting & Serving Board, Pennsylvania, 100% Bamboo Board for Cooking and Entertaining (Kitchen) Good cutting board, although I doubt very much we'll use it as a "cutting" board. Will likely end up being a hot plate holder for the table or hanging in the kitchen as an item of display. It's nicely built, comes with a nice leather strap - if you want to hang it up. I wouldn't recommend dishwashing this - I've had other cutting boards that are not single pieces of wood and with the heat from the dishwasher, they eventually come apart (glue melting or eaten by dish soap). Obviously with this being bamboo, it's not a single piece -- that would be a huge stalk!! Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 21, 2016
