In the early 1800s many American sought out "the sublime"—those natural attractions that provoked feelings of terror, awe, and beauty. Environmental tourism reemerged as an important industry in Georgia during the late nineteenth century. In 1926 state librarian Ella May Thornton first published in Atlanta Georgian magazine a list of Georgia's natural wonders, among them the Okefenokee Swamp, Providence Canyon, Warm Springs, and Tallulah Gorge.
