Bookshelf ABC - G

Ghosts of Grandeur captures the disappearing antebellum homes, people and places of the American antebellum South, specifically the state of Georgia. The primary purpose of this coffee table tome is to preserve the history and memory of antebellum structures that time has left behind since the Civil War.

As an extra treat, the pages are filled with  stories about the people who called these gracious buildings home and the places now transformed by their absence. No matter how you feel about the pre Civil War South, you'll appreciate the architecture of the lives and homes of the people who occupied it.


What G title have you read lately (or ever)?

Guns of Navarone. Can't remember the author right now, he wrote a lot of good books. They made a film of this one.

That's the sort of coffee table book I'd enjoy.

Gods And Generals comes to mind first, by Jeff Shaara.
