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.

Audible user reviews

Audible’s users are totally in love with the service!

“One of my favorite apps. I drive alot and Audible lets me get through a ton of books. They are great about returning books I don’t like. I also love that I can put it on any device and pick up right where I left off.”

“Just wonderful, I never had time to read except in the 10 minutes before bed, by then I’m already falling asleep and have to re-read the next night as it didn’t retain. Now I can listen to books while travelling, doing the housework, getting ready for work each morning. I’m getting through all the books I’ve been meaning to read for years in just a couple of months.”
