Full Description

This book lets you travel in an imaginary time machine to witness some of Georgia’s “historical” events. Emory Jones uses his considerable imagination to take readers on a fanciful flight through the years with his friend, Ludlow Porch.

The pair set out for Savannah to see James Oglethorpe’s arrival in 1733, but instead, land atop Stone Mountain in 1928. The time machine then detours to northwest Georgia’s Barnsley Gardens, Kennesaw, for the Great Locomotive Chase, then to Royston to see the Goat Man in 1956.

They even make it to Irwinville, GA, to witness the capture of Confederate President Jefferson Davis.  The book is a laugh a line, fun and definitely out of the ordinary.

*For even more fun, try the 210-minute audio version of the book as narrated by the author, Emory Jones. The audio comes as a three-CD set.
