Coast Tales: True Historic Stories From Georgia's Golden Isles
Recognized by the Georgia Press Association as among the state's best features/lifestyle columns, Larry Hobbs' weekly take on the fascinating history of Coastal Georgia's Golden Isles has become a reader favorite in The Brunswick News. In this compendium of the first year's worth of History columns, readers can acquire further insight into the region's storied past. Learn about the real-life folks who inspired a best-selling historical romance trilogy, discover the source behind the U.S.S. Constitution's nickname as "Old Ironsides," and get to know the men and women who fought World War II from the homefront at a shipyard on the Brunswick River. These and many more stories are covered in a casual, fact-filled style. It is all inside this followup to Hobbs' little book with the big title: A Historical Crash Course on Coastal Georgia and the Golden Isles. Also, there just might be a ghost story or two inside Coast Tales.
