Great Southern Storytelling
Fantastic book - Rick Bragg writes with blunt honesty of family and life and does it so descriptively you feel you are actually there experiencing everything. I purchased the book for my son after my husband read it. He loved it. Living in a small southern town in Georgia, which is just a hour's drive from the Jacksonville AL that Bragg speaks of, really causes the book to resonate with our own lives and stories. Both of our families have roots in Alabama and relatives who live there now, and my husband attended Jacksonville State University so we could both relate to the scenes Bragg describes. We have also read Ava's Man and All Over but the Shoutin' and they were just as powerful. You can't go wrong with any of Rick Bragg's books.
