About the Author
From panning for gold in Dahlonega to kayaking the Okefenokee Swamp, from riding horses around Lake Chatuge to feeding lemurs on St. Catherine's Island, Jim Morekis has experienced the best of Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina. In his extensive experience writing regional travel guides for Moon, Jim has camped the Blue Ridge Parkway, climbed 200-foot lighthouses and 100-foot sand dunes in the Outer Banks, and sailed Wassaw Sound looking for the "Tybee Bomb." He's eaten river herring in North Carolina and pork cracklins in South Carolina, steamed and shucked May River oysters, and stooped inside America's smallest church in McIntosh County, Georgia. Each new experience is an adventure, and after all this, he still finds beauty and wonder in this diverse area.
A proud native and resident of Savannah, the University of Georgia graduate covers the news, culture, politics, and quirks of life in the Georgia and South Carolina lowcountry as longtime editor-in-chief of a popular weekly newspaper.
