"Sautee Valley Spring" (1993)

    The secrets and history of eight northeast Georgia 
counties has been captured in a just released book and recording entitled Experience Northeast Georgia. The work was sponsored by the Habersham Electric Membership Corporation to celebrate its 75 years of service to this area. The stories were written and produced by Emory Jones, LLC, of White County and are narrated by the well-known artist and historian John Kollock of Habersham County.
      Of course, no history of this area would be complete without including the story of Clark Dyer's flying machine. It is recounted in the "Choestoe" portion (No. 31) of the book and recorded on the CD in a very delightful fashion.
     There are a total of 75 stories about people and places of historical significance across the eight counties. The book and CDs are available for purchase at the Byron Herbert Reese Farm and the Union County Historical Society in Union County and other retailers as listed at
