Stephen Doster does an excellent job of revealing the voices of these Georgians. We see the sites of coastal Georgia and understand the culture of 20th century Southern living in a straight forward, honest way. In a way that is rarely revealed in literature or history. Thank you for your book.

Twenty-six of the most influential Georgian’s of our time, and some we did not know but were ever so important. I actually went to the book launch on St. Simons Island and got my copy there. WOW! I even got to meet six of the incredible people in this book. I wish I could mind-meld with them. The things they accomplished and those they inspired to even more greatness. Mr. Cato and Mr. Brown were so encouraging. In their 90s and still making a difference.
Whether you are a Georgian or not, these people were Americans who did what no one else could do at a time when you could be killed for your ideas or your discouraged by your social status. Nothing stood in their way. And to this day, it proves that the only thing that deters us is our thoughts. Remove ‘can’t’, ‘never’ and ‘always’ from your vocabulary and you will succeed just like they did.
You did it again, Stephen!
