From the Author:

As we lose our storytellers, we lose our stories. That might sound pretty obvious, but think about it. Gone are the days of sitting on the porch, "shooting the breeze." Our stories are becoming more homogenous as a nation. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but it would be nice to keep some of those regional stories alive. So, let me cut to the chase and move things along. While this is not a detailed, comprehensive volume about Central Alabama's people, places and things, I hope you will find it somehow bridges the gap between today's status updates and yesterday's handwritten letters.

From the Back Cover:

The Heart of Alabama like you've never seen it before!
