The Tree That Owns Itself and Other Adventure Tales from Georgia's Past by Loretta Johnson Hammer and Gail Langer Karwoski

If you think history is just about old, boring people and hard to remember dates, you're wrong! In this paperback, published in 1996 by Peachtree Publishers, Atlanta, GA, 6th printing, discover Georgia history in stories behind a parachuting dog, a bear-wrestling swamp settler, a Georgia ghost town, a grave that speaks to the living, a car-lifting Olympic gold medalist, a gun-toting Revolutionary War woman plus six more exciting tales. Book includes a time line and coded map that help you trace your journey from present day back to colonial times. And after each story you'll find interesting facts about the adventure and information on related subjects. This book is on the Georgia Center for the Book's list of books all young Georgians should read. The authors, both former teachers, live near Athens, Georgia.
