Since the year 2000, over a million people have moved into the state of Georgia. Considering that over 14 percent of residents are new to the state within the last 10 years, the time seems right for a single source of essential information to aid these newcomers.
Newcomer's Guide to Georgia not only tells you about the taxes you'll have to pay, it tells you how to register your vehicles and obtain a license. It describes how the state government is set up and provides background about Georgia's colorful political history.
The book tells about the state's tourist attractions, historic sites, natural wonders, sports, mysteries, haunted places, and arts and food festivals. It also relates stories about Georgia's favorite sons such as R.E.M, Ray Charles, and Martin Luther King, Jr., and favorite daugters such as Margaret Mitchell, Flannery O'Connor, and Alice Walker.
Whether new to the state or a native, any Georgia resident will want the information in this one handy volume.
