Book Description Orig. pub. 1990, 2014. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. (x), 432 pp., maps, appendix, index. Print on Demand Edition 2014. With publication of The Land Between, Forrest Shivers gave Georgia a carefully researched, new history of Hancock County, founded in 1793 in the area between the Oconee and Ogeechee rivers. Beginning with the settlement of the area just after the American Revolution, he carries the story of the county through early Oconee Wars with the Creek Indians in the 1700s; through the birth and early reign of King Cotton; through Hancock County's Civil War participation and the demise of an economic and political system; through World War I, the boll weevil, and the Great Depression; and finally into social life, politics, and agriculture of the twentieth century. Hancock was an archetypal plantation county and home to some of the most successful and enlightened planters in the South prior to 1860. In fact buildings remaining from the period make Sparta, the county seat, a mecca for architecture buffs today. Names such as Mercers, Bemans, Pierces, Abercrombies, Dickson, Stephens, Lewis, Berckmans, Walkers, and the Hancock Planters Club march through the history's pages leaving their legacy which endures to this day. The late author Shivers was a seventh-generation native of Hancock who was retired from the United States Foreign Service. Bookseller Inventory # 129
