What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

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
