Excuse me while I go cook up some grits and book my trip to somewhere that laughs at the thought of snow and ice. This is an ode to the true Southern spirit and the topics range from old hound dogs to Rick's mother to delicious Southern dishes to Jerry Lee Lewis, and Santa Claus. There is something here for everyone and I was personally charmed the most by his deep love for his mama. I also found the chapter on the Jubilee to be fascinating. Want to go somewhere warmer or just appreciate your Southern locale? This is the book for you.
