Second book in Chris Wiggins
series now available.
"What you always wanted to know about Ocean Springs and Gautier,
but..." is the second in Chris Wiggins history series on Jackson
County and its communities and cities. This book is a historical
odyssey of the people, with all their foibles, and the times, with
all of their peculiarities, of two cities in south Mississippi.
It is a tale full of heroes and
scoundrels, explorers and fishermen, people with great ideals, and
people on the lam from the law. The story begins in 1699 when
Iberville arrived on the Mississippi coast, and ends...yesterday.
