Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Since its founding in 1733, Savannah, Georgia, has seduced visitors with its verdant beauty and its palpable sense of history. Rebels, Saints, and Sinners reveals the true stories behind some of the city's most notorious figures, including Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman, who captured the city during the Civil War, and Daniel Hogan, whose dry-goods store was the flash point for a devastating fire in 1889.

These essays also highlight local heroes--for example, sometime-resident and baseball great "Shoeless" Joe Jackson, and Cynthia Jacobson, still trying to solve a 100-year-old family murder. From John Wesley, founder of Methodism, to rock-and-roll pioneer Elvis Presley, many notable figures have left their mark on the city, and most of them are chronicled here.

Timothy Daiss, a Savannah native, is a journalist, columnist, and author whose works have appeared in local, regional, and national publications. His column runs weekly in five Georgia newspapers. This is his second book.

Enthralling essays about Savannah's noble and oft ignoble past! Includes essays about "Shoeless" Joe Jackson's days in Savannah, Bobby Jones time there in 1930, and a 1950s Elvis Presley concert that stirred the status quo and bemused the local media. Along the way we watch the city grow from an outpost carved in the vast wilderness to a modern city, see the rise of Savannah Jazz, and look on as a teenage Ted Turner learns to sail in Savannah waters. Also included are in-depth profiles about Savannah's lest than glorious past such as "Corruption Savannah Style", which looks at the vices of Georgia's mother city during the first half of the 20th Century. From the colonial era and James Oglethorpe to the 1970s, this book lays bare old Southern clichés and in doing so is great reading.

Since my son recently moved to Savannah, we read everything about it we can find. It's a beautiful, fascinating place full of history and graceful mansions. Especially in the month of October when the ghost tours are in full swing, it's a great place to visit and does not lack great authors to tell its stories. This book is a good one for a collection.

This is a great read on the not so typical history Savannah, GA. I've lived in Savannah all my life and I just never knew until this book I once lived on a road that was part of the race track from the early 1900s. The author exposed history that was hidden at the end of my driveway. Thanks for a great entertaining read.

Love books detailing the history and background of the city they are writing about. "Rebels, Saints and Sinners..." is a quick read filled with entertaining, factual details. Gives me some of the history of one of my favorite cities in the South.

I planned a trip to Savannah and read this in preparation. It was great to know why the squares are named as they are and the colorful history of Savannah was great to know.
