Text from the book’s colophon:
My niece, Madalyn, and her brother, Copeland, explore Georgia with me, canoeing the Ocmulgee, crossing the rocks below the dam at Juliette to discover an island full of goats. Upstream from the Indian mounds a cottonmouth reroutes us to an arrowhead washed ashore. Madalyn, barefoot and without her license, drives her great-grandfather’s truck as I sit in the back holding the boat. We pick blackberries and find Elizabeth Reed’s grave after lunch at the H&H. Madalyn will now attend college on Coleman Hill. Money from the sale of this book goes towards her tuition.
