What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Contains an introduction by Roy Blount Jr. that's worth the price of admission and offers 800 pieces of trivia guaranteed to amaze and amuse.—Knoxville News-Sentinel More than a trivia book, Yellow Dogs, Hushpuppies, and Bluetick Hounds includes over 800 questions along with in-depth answers that cover every aspect of southern culture from alligators to mulungeons to zydeco. There are questions on literature, music, entertainment, history, politics, the law, sports and recreation, science, medicine, business, industry, and religion. And yes—there are even questions about the three dogs appearing in the title. From the same folks who brought you the Encyclopedia of Southern Culture



"For the old Southern hands who think they already have a grasp on Southern culture (or at least on the Encyclopedia of Southern Culture.—Publishers Weekly



Although I do know quite a bit about southern culture, I can't be expected to know everything that Lisa Howorth and all the other people at the Center for the Study of Southern Culture know. . . . So you can be sure that this book is good wood turned in the grain.—Roy Blount Jr., from the Foreword
