We’ve got the classic, new and hard-to-find books and maps to help you get the most out of your adventures.
Bring all the gothic splendor of the Old South to life with a good novel or travelogue set in Appalachia, Charleston or Savannah. These tales can take you through the wilds of war-torn North Carolina, as in Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier, or all the way to Savannah in John Berendt's Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. But don't forget to bring that nature guide, too! Birders flock to the Southeast's unique avian sanctuaries.
