A nicely detailed and beautifully designed book that exhaustively documents the history of Jekyll Island. Sometimes the information might seem too in-depth for a reader with only a casual interest in the island, but I especially enjoyed the small historical vignettes here and there that enrich the island’s history with humor, like the story about Horton dancing above the Wesley twins’ sleeping quarters. The chapter about Jekyll ghosts is a nice closing chapter too.
I am a sucker for photography books. This one is about an island I had never heard of: Jekyll in Georgia. The author presents a very comprehensive background of the island; its history along with some stunning photographs. I enjoyed reading through this, although I must confess that compared to Greek islands I wasn't that impressed with the beach photos (hey what can I say I miss home! lol)

I was originally drawn to this book by the beautiful cover. Loving anything nature and or water oriented I wanted to at least give this book a look through. I had never heard of Jekyll Island, in Georgia prior to look at this book, but I can now say that I want to visit it. The pictures are absolutely breath taking and the history is interesting. I can see readers simply enjoying the pictures because it is a pretty long book.
