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.

    nice update to the book, but not so "off the path"

    The popular "Off the Beaten Path" book for Georgia has been updated by prolific Georgia Author Janice McDonald for its 10th edition.McDonald does a good job in the book of balancing Metro area Atlanta with the rest of the State. I think 1/3 of the book covers the Metro area. I did notice that many of the Atlanta area locations were not really "off the beaten path" type locations, but pretty well known. (I've only lived here a few months and I've heard of them)When she gets out of the Metro area, the book comes up with lots of good "Road Trip" ideas and also a number of good recommendations for accommodations and eating. Many of the trips can be done in a day from Atlanta area or over a long weekend.If you are looking for really "weird" of unique locations you might enjoy ... 4/5 Gene Bowker (Duluth, GA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Georgia Off the Beaten Path®: Discover Your Fun (Off the Beaten Path Series) (Paperback) The popular "Off the Beaten Path" book for Georgia has been updated by prolific Georgia Author Janice McDonald for its 10th edition.McDonald does a good job in the book of balancing Metro area Atlanta with the rest of the State.

    Big Disappointment

    2/5 HP (Atlanta, GA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Georgia Off the Beaten Path®: Discover Your Fun (Off the Beaten Path Series) (Paperback) I received this book 2 days ago, and after an admittedly quick look thru it, I'm disappointed. The first section I looked at was metro Atlanta, where I live. Every major tourist attraction in the city is listed! There may be some hidden, actually off the beaten path jewels in the book that I haven't discovered yet, but from what I've seen so far, the title of this book is very, very misleading. It should have been titled "The Guide to Major Tourist Attractions in Georgia." Hopefully, I'll still run across some true "Off the Beaten Path" places in Georgia, but I'm not getting my hopes up using this book as a reference.
