The South. It's more than just a direction. Some say it's the climate; others say it's the landscape, the food, or its state of mind. Most agree, it's simply the people. Southerners are natural born narrators, experts at telling unforgettable stories that collectively merge the charm of the Old South with the verve of the New South.
SOUTH is a compilation of essays and a portfolio of defining photography in a stunning coffee-table edition. Through words and images, SOUTH features compositions from inspiring people who have made differences in their communities, role models for the classy, New South. Each essay and photo is distinctive of the contributor's region, state, or hometown, stretching from the Bayou of Louisiana to North Carolina's Appalachian Trail. SOUTH is a celebration of heritage and a treasure for future generations, a commemorative heirloom of Southern culture.
Including essays by:
Bryan Batt | James Carville | Pat Conroy | Dallas Davidson | Kevin Flanery | Patti Callahan Henry | Coco Jones | Naomi Judd | Andie MacDowell | Jimbo Mathus | Mary Alice Monroe | Roger Pinckney | Marjory Heath Wentworth | and so many more!
Wendy was born and raised in Charleston, South Carolina. She is appreciative of her polite, Southern upbringing, the memories of a carefree childhood exploring the natural landscape of her coastal Southern home. South is Wendy’s third book.“I love Wendy Pollitzer’s writing. Her instincts are remarkable, her nose for truth infallible. I can’t pick up a journal or magazine that she’s written for without going straight to the table of contents in search of her piece. What I think is so interesting about her work is that she really believes in what she’s doing, in getting it right. She’s very, very good.” - Pat Conroy, Author
