Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling authors of The Southerner's Handbook, Good Dog, and The Southerner's Cookbook comes a lively compendium of Southern tradition and contemporary culture.
The American South is a multifaceted region with its own vocabulary, peculiarities, and cultural touchstones. Even for those born in the South, the unspoken rules - layered in local nuances and complexities - can sometimes be confounding. Tennessee whiskey may technically be bourbon, but don't let anyone in Kentucky hear you call it that. And bless your heart, don't you dare make the mistake of confusing a magnolia blossom with a Japanese tulip.
Now, from the editors of Garden and Gun - the magazine known as "the soul of the South" - comes this encyclopedia of Southern living, culture, and history. Covering age-old traditions and current zeitgeists, S Is for Southern includes more than 500 entries spanning every letter of the alphabet, from absinthe to zydeco. This audiobook also includes 100 signature essays from notable Southern writers, including:

Jon Meacham on the Civil War
Sean Brock on Waffle House
Roy Blount, Jr. on humidity
Jessica B. Harris on field peas
Jason Isbell on the Atlanta Braves
Jack Hitt on pluff mud
The Lee brothers on boiled peanuts
Jonathan Miles on Larry Brown
Julia Reed on the Delta

Informative and irreverent, S Is for Southern celebrates and demystifies the traditions of the South and is a must-listen for all fans of the region and culture enthusiasts.

Narrator not from around here!

Way too many such errors.
A qualified editor should have listened to the recording. As important as language is to the project....
