Discover the seldom told stories of Coastal Georgia history.

Get Off the Interstate: A Guide to the Historical Markers of Coastal Georgia leads the reader along the highways, city streets, country roads, dirt paths and woodland trails discovering history hidden amidst the scenic landscape.

The book engulfs the six Coastal Georgia counties of Camden, Glynn, McIntosh, Liberty, Bryan and Chatham, transporting the reader from the days before Oglethorpe developed a fledgling colony, to the modern day traffic of metropolitan Savannah.

Get Off the Interstate appeals to those touring the area as well as those who enjoy reading about America's thirteenth colony and her vast history. Every available historical marker from Camden county in the south to Chatham county to the north is represented with stories detailing the little known facts and expanding the brief information provided on the markers themselves. From ghost stories to historical churches, humorous antidotes to famous duels, the stories reveal the characters of history as flesh and bone human beings.
