Bill Cagle regularly gives lectures on the history of Georgia's marble industry, drawing inspiration and wisdom from his childhood experiences touring the quarries with his grandparents and hearing stories told by family members who worked in and around the Georgia marble industry. His passion for the history of Georgia's marble industry made him write “The Road to Georgia Marble”.
In every success, there is a story of challenges, failures, and hard work behind it. Before the marble industry became one of the most bustling industries in Georgia, it had a rough and complicated journey. The industry started with the construction of a road built through Cherokee land, then leading to the trails of tears. However, it doesn't stop there.
Bill expertly sorts out everything in the marble industry. His solid connection to the town and the company itself that established the marble industry made him the most reliable person when it comes to providing detailed and concise information about the marble industry.
The book is loaded with important pictures and documents he compiled and collected that show the humble beginnings of Georgia's marble industry. It was as if the author drives the readers down the memory lane. His expert narration left readers amazed, and they can't help but appreciate the successes that the marble industry in Georgia has achieved until now.
