Neal, from Calhoun, wrote one other book, A Second Book of Verse. His themes tend to relate to North Georgia and Indians. Relatively difficult book to find. While he was still Georgia's Poet Laureate, Neal became destitute and wound up in the Fulton County home for the poor. When the Atlanta newspaper's publicized this fact, Gov. Eugene Talmadge, gave Neal a salary/job, along with an office in the Capitol. (just a bit of trivia. )
