Robert L. Steed is a generous man. Although he is a personal guardian to a virtual mother lode of opinions-both informed and uninformed-he is always quick to share them with anyone in need. That is, with anyone in need of a good laugh from one of America's quirkiest and most inquiring minds. With verve and vigor (not o be confused with the centerfold twins of the same names), Steed offers a hilarious diagnosis of the current social and cultural condition. No one (except paying clinets) is spared his acerbic barbs in A Ship Without An Udder, expecially the overindulgent and overserious.

Sidetracked: Two Women, Two Cameras, and Lunches on Sherman’s Trail
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: P531
ISBN: 9780881465754
Availability: In stock
Price: $17.00
SIDETRACKED is a series of stories which chronicle the zigzag adventures of two authors searching for a better understanding of their state. Milam Propst and Jaclyn White are good friends who enjoy the creative process, love to chat, dine, and explore out-of-the-way places. Their initial plan was to trace Sherman’s March to the Sea and visit some of Georgia’s 3,000 plus historic markers along the way. While the journey would not necessarily spotlight the Civil War, Sherman’s path would provide them with a specific route. There was one slight disadvantage to the plan. Neither of the writers have any sense of direction. Because of this, they got sidetracked often, made countless U-turns, and frequently found fascinating stories by accident.

Southside: Eufaula’s Cotton Mill Village and its People, 1890–1945
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: H931
ISBN: 9780881466089
Availability: In stock
Price: $29.00
SOUTHSIDE relates the stories of the cotton mill workers and their families who lived and worked in Eufaula, Alabama, a small town on the Chattahoochee River, from the 1890s through 1945. Utilizing previously unpublished family records, oral histories, and other primary sources, author David Alsobrook relates the stories of the lives of these ordinary mill families—their hopes, dreams, joys, and tragedies. Many of the photographs that appear in Southside are from personal family collections and have never been seen previously. Alsobrook’s chapter on legendary mill owner Donald Comer presents a fresh assessment of this remarkably enlightened corporate executive and his own particular brand of paternalism, which differed significantly from the philosophy of many of his contemporaries in the Southern textile industry.

Ella Gertrude Clanton Thomas was an intelligent, spirited woman bornin 1834 to one of the wealthiest families in Georgia. At the age of fourteen she began and kept a diary for forty-one years, documenting her life before, during, and after the Civil War. In 1851 she graduated from Wesleyan Female College in Macon, Georgia. Then in 1852 she married her Princeton-educated husband expecting to live a charmed life. However, with the coming of the Civil War and its aftermath, her life changed forever. Thomas experienced loss of wealth, bankruptcy, the death of loved ones, serious illness, and devastating family strife. In 1893, Thomas moved to Atlanta where she became active in many women’s organizations. She found comfort in her work with the Women’s Christian Union and the Suffrage Movement, and began producing articles for newspapers that describe her work after the war. In 1899 Thomas was elected president of the Georgia Woman Suffrage Association. Because of her own losses, she was sensitive to the well-being of other women. Her life is an amazing story of survival and transformation that speaks to women in our own time.

Tales from Georgia's Gnat Line
By author: Larry Walker
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: H973
ISBN: 9780881466980
Availability: In stock
Price: $27.00
TALES FROM GEORGIA'S GNAT LINE is about the South--the Deep South; Larry Walker’s part of the world. It’s about good people, and some not so good. It’s about a part of the United States that was, and is, somewhat different from the rest. And it’s about cotton, because in many ways cotton caused Southerners to do some of the things that otherwise good people would not have done. It’s never been easy to be a Southerner, black or white. This book is about the South of the past, the present, and, if read carefully, of the future.
