Ne,.'w Book Shows 'Our C alture' Hogansville residents can check out a new book about the Chattahoochee River Valley cul- t-ure. The Historic Chattahoochee Commisssion this week announced the release of its 26th pub- lication, A Chattahoochee Album: Images of Traditional People and Folksy Places Around the Lower Chattahoochee River Valley. The book, authored by Fred C. Fussell, offers "a window into the traditional folkways and rich cultural heritage of one of the country's most distinctive regions," according to spokesman Doug Purcell of the Eufaula, Ala.-based commis- sion. Fussell has traveled and explored the Chattahoochee Valley for more than 25 years in his capacities as a museum curator, folklorist and historic preservationist. With camera in hand he "has made a visual record of the places and the people who perpet- uate the music, the stories and the crafts indige- nous to the lower Chattahoochee Valley," Purcell says. The book includes scenes of family reunions, sacred harp singings, clog dancing, white oak basket weaving, fiddle playing, gourd trees, folk pottery, yard whirligigs, bee keeping, festivals, canning and preserving, quilting, "syrup sop- pins," Indian powwows, grave decorations, road- side vendors and blues balladeers. "There are influences from the original Native Americans, Creeks and Cherokees, pri- marily, and the early Spanish intruders, the French and British colonists, and later the Euro- American settlers who migrated from the Carolinas, Virginia and New England, often with their African Slaves," Purcell noted. The Historic Commission is handling orders for A Chattahoochee Album, which is an 8X8 paperback priced at $29.95 plus $3 shipping and handling.
