Most Georgians know Loran Smith from Saturday afternoons and Georgia Bulldog football. Larry Munson would oftentimes say after a play, "Whaddaya got, Loran?" His colorful responses and chemistry with Munson made listening to the game an absolute joy. But, for decades Loran Smith has also either written or spoken about the things that interest us. Finally, in this book, Smith gathers his best columns and moments covering topics in four areas: Georgia, sports, travel, and the Greatest Generation. Smith's career began early enough to interview Ty Cobb, the Georgia Peach and one of the greatest baseball players ever to play the game (and one of the most divisive), and it has continued until this day. Whether he is writing on the Georgia Bulldogs or walking along the sideline, or if he is talking about quail hunting in South Georgia, Smith writes with a down-home flavor but with keen intelligence and empathy. His subjects range from small town living to international travel having visited five continents, from local sports to national sporting events, from fly fishing to hunting, visiting presidential libraries, museums, and birthplaces.
