  • Fountain is a character in its own play, its face worn by the years, traced by the touch of familiar hands. On the gentle slope of a Georgia hill sits Fountain Campground. For years, it has hosted the Camp Meeting, a week-long religious revival complete with tents, food, prayer, and praise. Author Dale Wiley grew up loving this great Georgia institution, an integral part of his family’s life and faith. For his entire life, he heard the old stories about Fountain Camp Meeting. But when he found a treasure trove of information on the site’s past, he discovered a story much different from the one of his childhood. Full of friendship, warmth, and love, the Fountain Campground continues to represent a rich tradition of faith. Through a compelling mixture of vivid detail and personal recollection, Wiley takes you to the present-day camp area and to the Southern kitchens that make the meeting experience so memorable. He also traces the roots of its inception nearly two hundred years ago, revealing little-known facts about Georgia’s history. Part history, part memoir, and part cookbook, There Is a Fountain: Voices and Stories of an Old-Time Southern Camp Meeting takes you deep into the heart of Southern religion.
