Summary

  • "Built on a pioneering spirit of self-reliance and grit, the South developed a distinct culture that set it apart. DIXIE travels to the South for a look at its influence on American culture. How did the South get its twang? Is the Southern accent really the nearest surviving relative of the American colonial accent? And what, exactly, are grits? Some of today's best known Southerners, including Trace Adkins, Al Bell, Bobby Bowden, James Carville, Jeff Foxworthy, Ty Pennington, Ricky Skaggs, Herschel Walker and Michael Waltrip, offer their insight on Southern culture. Along the way, uncover hidden and surprising truths about how the South shaped America. This is a history of the South from inside the South, full of fun "who knew?" facts and that unique Southern flavor. " -- Website.
