This little homage to Southern living is perfect for anyone wishing to revisit their roots in the deep South or those wanting to get a peek into what "Southern Hospitality" really means. B.S. Johnson not only does a good job in her collection of essays of conveying the warmth of the culture she grew up in, but does so in a way that will leave you hankering for a huge glass of sweet tea. So kick your feet up, sit a spell, and check it out!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I received this book in the mail and my first thought how can you put so much in a little book. Then I started reading it and found myself laughing and smiling. I started to reminisce about my childhood.I am not a southerner, I am from a small town in Northern Michigan. I could relate though to some of the stories told in this book of my time there. We had bonfires, took our trucks to the mud pits and made a party of it. It was a small town where you knew every one or were related.Everyone helped everyone. It was nice to have some of those memories come back. I have long since left that town and had forgotten some of its treasures.
I also learned a lot of what I did not know of the South. That even though I could relate to some as a Northerner, I was learning what it was that truly has made the south so special.
I will not give any spoilers, but will say this. A lot is packed into this little book that makes it a must read over and over. It is not a book just for the Southerners, but stories that make you feel good, laugh and smile no matter where you are from.
I recommend this Author and book. I look forward to reading more from her. Certainly expect to read this one over and over.
