Georgia Odyssey

Jeff Calder interviews imminent UGA Historian James Cobb about his book Georgia Odyssey this week on Cover to Cover.

The reader will put the book down with a deeper understanding of Georgia in all its contradictions.... "Odyssey" is no dry academic history...[i]nstead, it's an engagingly written volume that sometimes reads more like an irreverent conversation than words on paper.
--Lee Shearer, Athens Banner-Herald
