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.

    Impossible but true: an account of Georgia O'Keeffe's life and work that asks big questions and delivers big pleasure

    She was America's most famous female female artist --- what’s left to know about Georgia O’Keeffe?The good news: “Georgia” is a uniquely American chronicle — told by O’Keeffe — that starts with the importance of a good story and a killer bod. Does that sound uncannily like the techniques used to make careers for women a century later? Yes, and to degree that may shock purists, this is a book about Branding and Marketing, the first two commandments of success in the art world and our world. A book about you, perhaps, if you’re female and have a man in your life who wants the best for you and knows how you can get it. And, in the end, a book about a talent so fierce it crushed pretty much everything in its path — a rare story of artistic triumph.You know the outlines. In 1915, when O’Keeffe was a 27-year-old art teacher in Texas, she sent some charcoal drawings to a friend in New York. The friend showed... 5/5 Jesse Kornbluth (New York) - See all my reviews, February 9, 2016

    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.

    Captivating! Historic fans will delight in the life of the artist icon, and equally impressed with the talented storyteller.

    A special thank you to Random House and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.Inspired by the life of the extraordinary iconic American artist, Georgia O’Keeffe, the "Mother of American modernism", and her love relationship with, photographer Alfred Stieglitz; beautifully drawn, Dawn Tripp evokes emotion, complexity, passion, and creativity with her stunning delivery of GEORGIA.Not only an exploration of O’Keeffe’s life, art, politics, and influence; however, more importantly, an example of the many tough challenges faced by women of the era. The 1920s marked a period of new freedom for women in America's modernizing urban culture.Set in a world of change, at the end of WWI to the Roaring '20s and then the Great Depression, scrutinized both personally and professionally-- Readers will be swept away; from erotic, bold, intense, romantic, control, and sacrifice. Powerful and evocative!"I found... 5/5 Judith D. Collins (West Palm Beach, Fl) - See all my reviews, February 9, 2016

This review is from: Totally Bamboo Cutting and Serving Board, Alaska State (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 lcarr - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Totally Bamboo Cutting and Serving Board, Massachusetts State (Kitchen) I purchased this for a gift for a dignitary from Iceland. I thought it would be easy to slip into their luggage going back. This quality of this board far exceeded my expectations. It was beautifully made and more sturdy that I had thought it would be. I was concerned that the "cape cod" part might break off but I am sure that even under rigorous use this would not be an issue.

    Fun shape for quality board!

    5/5 LoLo - See all my reviews This review is from: Totally Bamboo Cutting and Serving Board, North Carolina State (Kitchen) I have a few standard boards from this company and I love them. Great quality and they last forever (you shold oil them occasionally though). I love the State shapes! I ordered California and was surprised at the size and functionality. I had planned on just giving it as a gift to be put out as decoration but you can do fun things with it. I got creative and put the board together with wine, cheese and nuts and brought it as a host gift. It was a total hit! She used it to serve the cheese and other appetizers The board itself look and feels really expensive and the shape is so fun. I would love to get more for Christmas gifts (mom, don't look) but Amazon seems to be out of stock on a lot of states. I think it would be really fun to create a theme gift basket around the State. Absolutely recommend. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 8, 2013

    Funny, Quirky, and Touching; a Great Read!

    Ok, first off, I am a GUY and I normally don't read this chick lit stuff. Give me a thriller that involves violence and imminent death and I'm happy.But I met Rachel at a writers conference and decided to give her book a try. I'm glad I did! It was a travel day for me, and I ended up laughing out loud enough that I'm sure the person in the seat next to me on the plane was wondering what I was reading. I honestly almost missed a flight because I was so into Macy's story that I didn't hear them announce that my plane was boarding!It's true that Georgia on Her Mind doesn't have the rough language and other gratuitous junk that's all around us in the world today, but these characters seem true to my experiences, and their story is believable. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and Macy was a kick to hang out with for a few days. Drag's character was anything but a drag, and provided the perfect addition to the rest of the cast.If you like this chick lit... 4/5 Scott Weberg - See all my reviews, October 28, 2006

    Light and Entertaining

    Macy Moore has everything that a girl could want... great job, big money and a 'serious' boyfriend. Then it all suddenly comes to pieces...First up I finished this book over a couple of days so Rachel Hauck definitely gets points for the 'readability' factor.Macy was funny, frustrating and fiesty. And real - I liked the fact that she wasn't a 'super Christian' and in fact at the beginning was anything but. Georgia on her Mind was an easy read and didn't feel preachy which is always a plus. The main reason it is getting a three star rather than a four is because whilst good, I had the ending pretty much figured out by about page 40, and even in chick lit I like to be kept guessing a bit more. Also for me some of the secondary characters either fell a bit flat or I couldn't work out what they brought to the story.Having said this I will be buying Ms Hauck's next books as I liked her writing style, she doesn't write perfect characters that I can't... 3/5 Kara I (New Zealand) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    HILARIOUS!!!

    In a word ... HILARIOUS. Georgia on Her Mind is a rollicking good book, filled with memorable characters on a rollercoaster ride with life. Macy has a lot to learn and a lot to get over, and her faith walk reminded me a lot of my own--three steps forward; two slippery-slide steps back.Hauck portrays Macy's dilemmas, and the way she handles them--or doesn't--with a fresh voice, having fun with the characters and the story. There were times I wanted to slap Macy upside the head and tell her to get a grip and get over it, but then so did her girlfriends. Rachel Hauck had me completely invested in the lives of her characters. I needed to know how they got through all the "stuff".Macy's search for God's will is like ours. I don't get lightning strikes or verbal directions from God. Neither did Macy. She had to keep looking, make mistakes and guess, hoping to discover the right way for her. Just like you and me.
