As Southern As It Gets is years in the making. From people, to phrases and quotes, to food, music, and outings, the South has some of the most unique. Most of these reasons are simply one of two words but the pictures they drew up in my mind and the memories many of them evoked was something else.
For example, hot browns. How many of you reading this review even know what one is? Created right here in Louisville, Kentucky at the Brown hotel, you have never had such a combination of turkey, bacon, and cheesy richness. Or Silver Queen corn. Can you even get it in the north if it isn't brought in from the South? How about the Parthenon in Nashville, TN? It is a sight to behold. While not as exciting as a European vacation, it is our own little piece of Europe.
I did expect this book to be a little bit more of a narrative but the A to Z listing and some of the quotes allowed my mind to wonder and connect to my own memories of growing up in the South. It is a quick easy to read hardbound book that was enjoyable and gave me a list of things to try and places to go that were new to this Southern girl.
I did receive this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review and was in no way obligated to write a positive one.

Jackson Brown, Jr. is a simple book that consists of one really long list. If you are from the south, it could remind you of some of your favorite things about this region of the United States.
This book could also inspire readers to visit the South if they have never done so before. Some of the highlights that applied to the time I enjoyed visiting my grandparents when they lived in North Carolina include sleeping porches and sitting on the front porch and waving at the neighbors.
The items are arranged in alphabetical order. There is no explanation or additional information for any item in the list.
