Georgia is a thoroughly modern state, known for its vibrant culture and bustling economy. Despite this veneer of normalcy, strange legends lurk around every corner. Former president Jimmy Carter's family consulted a psychic in an attempt to find one of the farm's wayward dogs. A Hall County ranch was plagued by mysterious cattle mutilations made with surgical precision. Eggs, alligators, turtles and frogs have rained down from the heavens across the state, from Columbus to Savannah. Evidence suggests that ancient seafarers regularly visited the Peach State centuries before Columbus reached the New World. Author Jim Miles explores these and many more in a collection of stories that can be found only in the Peach State.
