What Readers are saying

  • With the same rapier wit and eloquent but engaging scene-setting that distinguish his courtroom "work," Jerry Summers' compilation of stories is designed to draw you into the history of Tennessee with dashes of Georgia and Alabama. While each story stands alone, you'll want to quickly turn the pages and wander through the quick glimpses of the past, enjoying the deftly drawn portraits that make this region of the nation unique and intriguing. Summers has done it again - and this historian is glad he did.
    Linda Moss Mines, Chattanooga and Hamilton County Historian

  • Within these pages, Jerry has - as usual - uncovered hidden nuggets throughout the Tennessee Valley area and beyond. As equally talented a writer as he is a lawyer, Jerry brings these stories to life and treats his subjects with dignity and respect. Attorney, author, advisor, and friend - the books written by Jerry Summers are a true treasure trove ... as is he.
    Chip Chapman, WDEF Television Anchor and Executive Producer, Tennessee Radio Hall of Fame
  • Tri-State Reflections highlights the author's seemingly endless historical knowledge and creative storytelling. With broad audience appeal, readers will be educated on southern history and many southerners will feel nostalgic as they remember these meaningful people and events.
    Tera Roberts, Chief Executive Officer Orange Grove Center ,Inc.

  • With an experienced trial lawyer's eye for key evidence, Jerry Summers once again reveals significant, if often quirky, facts and legends of the three states, resulting in a rich volume of local history and lore.
    S - am D. Elliott, Attorney

  • Tri-State Reflections is a "page turner" which is profound, touching, humorous, historical, and filled with truthful facts. Jerry Summers reflects a large amount of research with great detail. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in stories about the South.
