Roll the Stone Away: A Family’s Legacy of Racism and Abuse
By author: Ann Hite
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: P598
ISBN: 9780881467321
Availability: In stock

ROLL THE STONE AWAY is the true story that influenced the award-winning Black Mountain novel series. Ann Hite, in her storytelling mode, envisions a sack of stones poised to hang around her neck the moment she is born and added to throughout her childhood by her grandmother and mother. Each stone represents a family story that forms who Hite becomes as an adult. Generations of abuse, racism, adultery, and lies populate this sordid history. In the midst of the telling are strong, flawed women who are far from good role-models for a young Hite but show that survival and success in the worst scenarios are not always lost.

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.

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.
