Summary
"Like Dublin, like Paris and San Fransisco, Savannah is not so much a city as a region of the heart, a quality of grace and leisure which has almost vanished from urban life. Few American cities inspire the loyalties that Savannah engenders in both visitors and her native sons. Her admirers have ranged from General Oglethorpe, who conceived her, to General Sherman, who ravished her; from the generation of Negro blues singers who mythologized her, to the hard-headed financiers who cherished her through the bitter years of a prolonged depression. Somehow they preserved her ageless beauty and her unique life style. And today, when the cities that once obscured her are fighting for their lives, her admirers are gallantly ushering her into her finest hour as a prototype of the urban environment." Savannah has been called many things-"the best-kept secret in America," "the best-planned city in the United States," "one of the most cultivated cities in the world"-and throughout her two and a half centuries she has continued to cast a spell that has charmed almost all who have come to know her beautiful squares, her splendid mansions and plantations, her fine restaurants and taverns, and those individual qualities that have placed her among a handful of American cities with unmistakable characters of their own.--Page 2 and 3 of cover
