I am from Kentucky, and this book takes a good look at Dixie from a southerners point of view. We are often mocked by Hollywood, and told to be ashamed of our history, but this book will hopefully educate those from the north on why we love our homeland and way of life so much. Maybe, they will even learn to respect our culture and heritage a bit. Deo Vindice!

Well Im not southerner like others, but I was born in Georgia but raised in Florida to parents born up north. I consider myself a southerner cause I was born down here. The book is a must for anyone who enjoys the south and the southern way of life.

This book definitely has a point of view, which is very pro-southern.  It is intended to help southerners appreciate their own culture and history, and that is fine.  I like that it makes the argument that many northern places have a long history of slavery and racism as well.   However, the sections on southern slavery literally argue that slavery was not that bad, or the terrible aspects of it were exaggerated.  It literally repeats arguments that 1800's slave owners made about how slaves were better off than free workers, they were usually happy, the beatings and attacks on slave families were exaggerated, etc.  Many of these claims are shocking and totally false.   Regardless, what is the point of arguing that slavery wasn't that bad?  What is the value in southern history of becoming a modern slavery apologist?   If you want to have your ego stroked as a southerner and believe that those liberal northerners lie, then read this book.  If you want a serious historical work on southern history, then read anything but this self-serving piece of pseudo-historical fluff.

I bought this book and just thought it was fantastic. I'm a Northwesterner (Washington State, not exactly a Northern Yankee type but too similar of one) who has been plotting to head South for a while and found the book to be quite the guide on Southern culture, history and heritage and I loved the easy reading of the text....needless to say I recommend it!!

This book is great for anyone interested in Southern History and Culture. Starts with the American Revolution and finishes up with the present.

This book does have some good information regarding the Civil War and a little about the Revolution, however, you will not be able to get to that part of the book because the overly used word "southerner" will drive you nuts and force you to put this book down many times. I am Michigan born and bred but have lived in Florida and Georgia for the past 15 years. I can hunt and fish better, and know more about NASCAR than most "southern" people I know. The author paints a picture that ALL the people from the south are like what he describes in this book, but that is just not the case. Not everything north of the mason dixon line is New York City, and not everything south of it is solid country like he would have you believe. Sorry, Clint, just because you're from down here, doesn't make you any better or more American than anybody else.
