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. SIDETRACKED is a great read for would-be history buffs who will appreciate the research that went into it. But the stories are also crafted to entertain readers who will relish the surprises found in the unexpected turns along the road and the ongoing dialogue between Propst and White. It’s informative, it’s funny, it’s sad; it’s a story of newly revealed truths and longstanding friendship.
