Traveling the Fascinating South

This Is My South, by Caroline Eubanks, inspires the reader to explore the Southern States––Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia––like never before. Lisa Russell's book, The Underwater Ghost Towns of Georgia, explores the more than forty manmade lakes in Georgia and what lies beneath them. Lisa Murray's Amazing Georgia is a fun and creative coloring book journey across the 159 counties that make up this great state. Each of Georgia’s counties is celebrated with images featuring the places, animals, plants, and activities that make that county special. As well as the fun drawings, each page includes a short paragraph about the history of the area and the images that were chosen. Join these three authors as they discuss the state so many of us calls home.
