"From Azaleas to Zydeco"
Inspired by a 1937 map and travelogue of a newspapermans tour, author Mark W. Nichols embarked on his own long journey into the unique cities of the South. En route he met beekeepers, cheese makers, crawfish bawlers, duck callers, and a licensed alligator hunter, as well as entrepreneurs and governors. His keen observations encompass the southern states from Virginia to Arkansas and points south, and he unpacks the unique qualities of every city he visits. Besides being just plain fun to read, Nichols’ account of his journey gives readers a true taste of the flavor of the evolving modern South.
