Fall News and Notes

Hello all. Several things to apprise you of today.
First I want to thank all of you who thus far have taken the time to look over my new website. The numbers of those viewing the site do add up and when the numbers get high enough they tell me the website will start showing up in Google searches of my name, so many thanks! Also, some of you have offered some very useful suggestions and ways to enhance the site. I have incorporated some of these as you will see in the addition of several pages to the site. These include a listing of my upcoming public talks, lectures and appearances. Another new page, which is a work in progress, will feature some extracts from several of my books and papers. This is being done to enable newcomers to the site or newcomers to my work, to have an idea of the focus of my research and writing over the years.
On another book note, the University of Georgia Press has just released my book The Darien Journal of John Girardeau Legare, Ricegrower in a new softcover edition. The hardcover edition, still available, was published by the Press in 2010. I think the softcover printing will enhance the availablity of the book to many coastal history enthusiasts as the price is about half that of the hardcover book.
I will be speaking at the Lower Altamaha Historical Society in Darien on October 18, doing my "Life, Labor and Landscape" talk linking ecology and history in coastal Georgia. I will also be at the Ashantilly Center on Saturday, November 3rd for a 1 p.m. talk about tabby architecture and related subjects. This is part of the annual Darien Fall Festival so if you are in the area that day, please stopby for the program.

Mr. Sullivan - Delighted to see that you now have a website and a blog. I consider your, EARLY DAYS ON THE GEORGIA TIDEWATER, to be our main family reference source on this subject. I have an old family camp house at Harritts bluff built by my grand father in 1925. It is rough, but so lovable. I try to spend about four months a year there. I now live in southern Louisiana, but all of my people from the early 1800's are from Waycross and the Ware county area. I am a history buff as that was my major at FSU. I never taught history or really used my degree in my professional life, but history and particularly the Georgia tidewater area are close to my heart. As an aside do you have any information or knowledge of how Harrietts Bluff got its' name? I have heard that the area was once a plantation and the land was called Herriots Bluff as it had a French name from the family owner. Thank you for your research, books, lectures, and writings.
