As Southern As It Get cover

Synopsis:

Life Is Sweet in the South
Full of small towns and sparkling cities, this welcoming area invites all who visit to put your feet up, have a glass of ice tea in a mason jar and reminisce on some of the most wonderful things in the South. Written by true Southern gentleman H. Jackson Brown Jr., As Southern As It Gets is a charming book of lists—a celebration of all things Southern that will charm and delight anyone who was raised south of the Mason-Dixon or who wish they lived there.
Recall the tastes, sounds, and beauty of Southern treasures such as:
Juicy Georgia peaches in July
Glorious changing leaves on the Natchez Trace
A steaming cup of gumbo from New Orleans
The smooth, soulful voice of Patsy Cline
From Music Row in Nashville, to Daytona Beach in Florida, and Charleston to New Orleans, As Southern As It Gets will remind you of why we Southerns so love our home.
Review:
Consider this the ultimate "Things to Do in the South, Before You Die' List! This is a book of a list, not chapters of stories, so it's great for a mini-travel idea guide for a Southern trip, things to try, and things to laugh and cry over! There are headings for sections like "See Rock City", "Swaying Front Porch Swings" and  Cane Pole Fishing" that set the stage for parts of the list, but they are more like suggestions.  It will bring back memories and warm feelings of nostalgia, like the author's Top 20 that starts the list. It was fun to go through and check off those I've completed or shared, and see what is left! The author takes all that is great in the South and via a simple list, rolls it into a way of life, one to be cherished and lived! Be sure to check it out!
