Summary
For the first time, prizewinning author Rick Bragg's most poignant portraits of the uniquely American experience of Southern life are combined into one volume. Along with many new essays, My Southern Journey delves into regional obsessions from college football and fishing to mayonnaise, spoon bread, and the beauty of a fish on the hook. With his insightful and deadpan sense of humor, Bragg explores enduring Southern verities and the regions' varied geographies, including his native Alabama, Cajun country, and the Gulf Coast
