  • A Proud Athletic History: 100 Years of the Southern Conference
    By author: John Iamarino
    In the winter of 1921, fifteen prominent colleges and universities met in Atlanta, Georgia, to form a new organization to promote intercollegiate athletics competition. That organization, soon to become known as the Southern Conference, remains a strong and viable member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) 100 years later. This is the first definitive history of the SoCon, utilizing many rarely-before-seen photos, researched via official league records and minutes, and filled with features and highlights in an easy-to-read format. There's also a detailed look at the present conference membership, which is a remarkably diverse combination of state and private institutions, as well as two military colleges.
  • The Forever Wish of Middy Sweet
    By author: Terry Kay   Afterword by: Jeff Fields
    Middy Sweet Young, a wealthy widow, returns to her hometown in Northeast Georgia in search of her youth, lured by a dreamy wish shared with Luke Mercer, her high school boyfriend: "One day we’ll be together…" THE FOREVER WISH OF MIDDY SWEET is the story of that prophecy--the former beauty queen and the retired history teacher reuniting fifty years after her vow.
  • Into Tennessee and Failure: John Bell Hood
    By author: Stephen Davis
    INTO TENNESSEE AND FAILURE is the second volume of Stephen Davis's study of John Bell Hood's generalship in 1864. Davis's theme in Volume One was the ambition that drove Hood to seek higher and higher rank. Here, while recognizing Hood's loyalty to the Confederate cause, he discerns Hood's unflattering traits: questioning the courage of his men, bickering with other generals, and concealing from his superiors the extent of his disaster in Tennessee.

  • Pure Evil: The Machetti Murders of Macon, Georgia
    By author: Jaclyn Weldon White
    Rebecca and Ronald Akins and their three daughters appeared to be a typical suburban family in 1970 Macon, Georgia, but the attractive facade hid a family in crisis. After their 1974 divorce, Becky took the children to South Florida where she pursued a life of gambling and partying while her daughters were left to fend for themselves. Fueled by popular books and films, she changed her name and her daughters's to Machetti, a name she believed to be appropriate for the Mafia. This is the story of Rebecca Machetti, a cold-blooded woman whose prosecutor described as "pure evil" and her three daughters who lived through years of abuse before finally finding peace and normal lives.
