South, What it means to be here in heart or in spirit by Wendy Nilsen Pollitzer with foreword by Patti Callahan Henry
The South. It's more than just a direction. Some say it's the climate; others say it's the landscape, the food, or its state of mind. Most agree, it's simply the people. Southerners are natural born narrators, experts at telling unforgettable stories that collectively merge the charm of the Old South with the verve of the New South. The region is majestic and no matter the degree of diversity, people far and wide rejoice in the South's beauty, simplicity, and grace.
SOUTH is a compilation of 50 essays and a portfolio of defining photography by 21 photographers in a stunning coffee-table edition that will harvest an emotional Southern craving, whether you're from here, moved here, or just stopped in for a visit. Through words and images, SOUTH features compositions from inspiring people who have made differences in their communities, role models for the classy, New South. Each essay and photo is distinctive of the contributor's region, state, or hometown, stretching from the Bayou of Louisiana to North Carolina's Appalachian Trail.
SOUTH is a celebration of heritage and a treasure for future generations, a commemorative heirloom of Southern culture.

About the Author
Wendy Nilsen Pollitzer was born and raised in Charleston, SC. She is appreciative of her polite, Southern upbringing, the memories of a carefree childhood exploring the natural landscape of her coastal Southern home. This is Wendy's third book.
"I love Wendy Pollitzer's writing. Her instincts are remarkable, her nose for truth infallible. I can't pick up a journal or magazine that she's written for without going straight to the table of contents in search of her piece. What I think is so interesting about her work is that she really believes in what she's doing, in getting it right. She's very, very good."- Pat Conroy, Author
