- Nodoroc and the Bohurons

Wilson’s famous book, The Early History of Jackson County Georgia, and chapters include Nodoroc, The Wog, the Bohurons and Yamacutah, the mysterious site where the Great Spirit once walked.Nodoroc and the Bohurons is the fascinating history of the Native Americans, European settlers and strange creatures, who lived in northeastern Georgia during the late 1700s.
- The Apalache Chronicles
In 1653 an English gentlemen from Barbados made a remarkable journey through the mountains of what is now the states of Georgia and North Carolina. In 1658 an even more remarkable French Huguenot minister included the descriptions of that journey in a voluminous book on the people, flora and fauna of the Caribbean Basin. This book was very popular in the late 1600s, and forgotten in the 1700s. American scholars have disdained it as a fantasy novel, because it described stone temples and shrines on the mountaintops of Georgia, plus large Native towns on the mountainsides and in the valleys.
