About the Book

Seasoned traveler Kap Stann offers an insider’s view of Georgia, from eating at the best roadside rib joints to hiking the Peach State’s rugged stretch of Appalachian Trail. Kap is a perfect tour guide, providing trip ideas like a Classic Savannah Weekend, the Old Atlantic Coast Highway, and the Barbecue Landmark Trail.

Packed with information on dining, transportation, and accommodations, Moon Georgia has lots of options for a range of travel budgets. Every Moon guidebook includes recommendations for must-see sights and many regional, area, and city-centered maps. Complete with details on “shooting the hootch” (taking a lazy float trip down the Chattahoochee River), getting a lesson on Civil War history in Chickamauga, and heading to the coast to sample the barbecue at the Georgia Pig, Moon Georgia gives travelers the tools they need to create a more personal and memorable experience. With expert writers, first-rate strategic advice, and an essential dose of humor, Moon Handbooks are the cure for the common trip.

About Kap Stann
Kap Stann was born and raised in New York State, where most of the traveling she did was on family car trips up and down the East Coast. Her first time on an airplane was at age 17. When the ticket agent asked for her address, Kap replied, "24 Old Sleepy Hollow Road in Pleasantville." The agent responded in an acerbic, New York accent, "And where's dat, next to NevaNeva Land?"

Now a seasoned traveler, Kap has visited 48 states, toured 10 European countries, worked as a Swiss maid, vacationed in Mexico, explored remote corners of Central America and Southeast Asia, and crossed the Andes on foot to Macchu Pichu on a recent trip to Peru. Even after all of these experiences, she still maintains that the American South is the most "unexpectedly exotic" place she has ever seen.

Kap's first glimpse of the South took place on a trip to Georgia when she was in her late twenties. The history, the collective memory, the climate, cuisine, and culture were all so strikingly different, that she ended up writing about the region for the next 10 years. Today her travel guides cover every state south of the Mason-Dixon line, from Maryland to Louisiana.

When asked about Southern "favorites", Kap cites the exceptional food, especially barbecue, country cookin', and shrimp-and-grits. She admits, however, that her favorite delicacy is sweet tea (the house wine of the South); drinking it is the only way she knows how to get through a summer without air conditioning.

Prior to writing guidebooks, Kap was a freelance writer, covering health, labor, education, and women's issues. She has also worked in a media reform organization, and run the public affairs office for the University of San Francisco and UC Berkeley Extension.

Kap and her daughter Cory live in Berkeley, California.
