In “12 MONKEYS & A GREEN JACKET” (published by Xlibris), Robert A. Mullins invites readers to explore Southern history, more importantly, the history of Augusta, through one of the Southeast’s most historically renowned lakes, Lake Olmstead. This new book is designed to raise awareness on both the currently wasted potential of the lake as well as the amount of respect her rich history warrants.

“12 MONKEYS & A GREEN JACKET” presents the social history of Augusta through a series of entertaining stories and answers to questions such as why Augusta had the grandest hotels in the South and why the world’s greatest golf course, the Augusta National, is located here.

Dayton L. Sherrouse of the Augusta Canal National Heritage Area describes this book as a “must-read for anyone who has an interest or appreciation of Augusta’s colorful history.” He adds, “The name of book may be a little confusing. Most people might recognize the “green jacket” reference but the “twelve monkeys” may leave you scratching your head. Rather than spoil the surprise I encourage you to read the book for this and many other reasons.”
