Archives of " Life Down South"
A Collection of Columns By Tom Poland

Bio: Tom Poland
Tom writes about the South, its people, land, and culture. He travels back roads looking for forgotten places, captivating people, and vestiges of bygone times, many of which appear in his columns and features. Much of that work finds its way into books. A Georgian and University of Georgia alumnus, he lives in Columbia where he writes about Georgialina, the region he calls his native land. He’s written ten books and has three others underway. His weekly columns appear on Edgefield Daily on Fridays.

Tom's current book "Georgialina, A Southland as We Knew It" can be purchased online here and is available in book stores.
