In this meticulously researched history of Georgia's executive mansion, the authors wonderfully illuminate the intertwining stories of its caretakers, the state's first families, and the people of Georgia. Surely, it will become a model of its kind.--Jamil Zainaldin, President, Georgia Humanities Council
This book engages readers in a way that helps them experience fifty years of Georgia political personalities as they promoted our state on the magnificent set that is our Governor's Mansion. More than that, despite the first families' disparate backgrounds, politics, and personalities, this book highlights the connection of common awe and responsibility they all have felt while performing their roles in a fishbowl.--Sheffield Hale, President and CEO, Atlanta History Center
