David G. Tippens

David lives in Canton, Georgia, in what was a part of the Cherokee Nation along a small tributary of the Etowah River near the site of Hickory Log Town. Many arrowheads and other Native American artifacts have been found on his land. Family has lived in Cherokee County since 1836, prior to the Cherokee removal in 1838.

Born in Atlanta, Georgia, David grew up and attended public schools in Cobb and Cherokee counties. He is a graduate of Shorter University, Reinhardt University, and the American Institute of Banking.

He became a very enthusiastic student of history, particularly American history, while in elementary school. He has visited several Civil War, Revolutionary War, and War of 1812 battlefields and other historic sites and museums. An avid student of Cherokee Indian history, myths, and legends, he has visited a number of sites of Cherokee Towns.

He was formerly a radio announcer, entrepreneur, banker, and financial services company owner. He grew up riding horses, playing football, swimming, water skiing, singing and playing guitar, and reading.

Current projects include taking pictures of every historical marker pertaining to the Civil War Atlanta Campaign of 1864. He has plans for more writing—novels, short stories, and songs. Two Falling Waters is the sequel to his debut novel, Two Bent Trees.
