As Southern As It Gets By H. Jackson Brown #Review
As Southern As It Gets
1,071 Reasons to Never Leave the South
By H. Jackson Brown
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 Southerners do love our home.
I received a complimentary copy.
Cassandra's Review- Honestly this book is a list of words and have no rhyme or reason other then alphabetically ordered and relate to the south. I thought it was going to be filled with stories, or at least some explanation of things, but it is like reading plain words in a list with a few quotes thrown in. Honestly you can still enjoy most of the people and items while you are living in the North so it is kind of besides the point and more of a pride thing then a nostalgic moment.
