[Read by Graham Halstead]
From the bestselling authors of The Southerner's Handbook, Good Dog, and The Southerner's Cookbook comes a lively compendium of Southern tradition and contemporary culture.
The American South is a multifaceted region with its own vocabulary, peculiarities, and cultural touchstones. Even for those born in the South, the unspoken rules -- layered in local nuances and complexities -- can sometimes be confounding. Tennessee whiskey may technically be bourbon, but don't let anyone in Kentucky hear you call it that. And bless your heart, don't you dare make the mistake of confusing a magnolia blossom with a Japanese tulip.
Now, from the editors of Garden & Gun -- the magazine known as ''the soul of the South'' -- comes this encyclopedia of Southern living, culture, and history. Covering age-old traditions and current zeitgeists, S Is for Southern includes more than 500 entries spanning every letter of the alphabet, from absinthe to zydeco. The book also includes 100 signature essays from notable Southern writers, including:
John Meacham on the Civil War
Sean Brock on Waffle House
Roy Blount Jr. on humidity
Jessica Harris on field peas
Jason Isabel on The Atlanta Braves
Jack Hitt on Pluff Mud
The Lee Brothers on boiled peanuts
Jonathan Miles on Larry Brow
Julia Reed on the delta
Informative and irreverent, illustrated with black-and-white line drawings throughout, S Is for Southern celebrates and demystify the traditions of the South, and is a must-read for all fans of the region and culture enthusiasts.
