"Deliverance" Georgia Local Custom Tip by goingsolo

Georgia Local Customs: 12 reviews and 19 photos


Atlanta native and novelist James Dickey wrote this story which later became a movie and struck fear in the hearts of many, especially men. If you don't know why, just ask someone who's read the book or seen the movie. Portions of Dickey's novel were allegedly based upon a small town in North Georgia, and drew extreme criticism from the town's residents who were not portrayed favorably to say the least. Actually, the supposedly fictional but based upon reality residents of this small town were depicted as inbred, toothless and sodomizing individuals. Its definitely not a children's story.
