Venture off the beaten path to forgotten roads, where a hidden South Carolina exists. Time travel and dead-end at a ferry that leads to wild islands. Cross a rusting steel truss bridge into a scene from the 1930s. Behold an old gristmill and imagine its creaking, clashing gears grinding corn. See an old gas pump wreathed in honeysuckle. Drive through a ghost town and wonder why it died. When's the last time you saw a country store's cured hams hanging from wires? How about a vintage Bull Durham tobacco ad on old brick? Tom Poland explores scenic back roads that lead to heirloom tomatoes, poke salad, restaurants once gas stations, overgrown ruins and other soulful relics.
About the author:
is the author of fourteen books and more than 2,000 magazine features and columns. Tom writes about the South, its people, culture, land, natural wealth, and beautiful detritus-ruins and abandoned places. He travels back roads looking for forgotten places, captivating people, and vestiges of bygone times. Much of that work finds its way into books, columns, essays, and features. Once upon a time playing football meant the world to him. Come an autumn day in Athens, Georgia, you'll find him in Sanford Stadium watching the Dawgs play.
Nina's once-sweet life has unexpectedly turned
sour. Her marriage is over, her job is in jeopardy,
and her teenage daughter is slipping away from
her. Then her father dies and issues with Nina's mother come to a head; her estranged brother, Ray, comes home;
and her sister, Lola, is tempted to blow a big family secret
out of the water. They say the truth will set you free, but
first it will make a huge mess of things.
All Nina's got left is her final photography assignment shooting images for the book 32 Ways to Make Lemonade
. Well, that and the attention of a younger man, but Oliver's on-again-off-again romantic interest in her ebbs and flows so much she is seasick. And then Jack, her ex-husband, shows up, wanting to get back together.
As Nina struggles to find a way through her complicated relationships and to uncover her true path, she discovers just how valuable a second chance at life and happiness can be.
