About this title


Searching for the Dixie Barbecue, with its thought-provoking text and many black and white photos, is a culinary and cultural saga. Here are glimpses of a fragment of society still tenaciously clinging to deep-rooted, primal instincts; to legends of the American frontier; and to the hand-me-down, rural traditions of the Deep South. This is a story about (among other things) regional pride, homespun cookery, backwoods lore, self-effacing "redneck" humor, shameless braggadocio, macho self-imagery, carnivorous bravado, porcine fundamentalism, boldfaced lies, and both culinary and social intransigence. This book will supply you with the elusive answers to three questions: "What is 'real' barbecue?" "How do you find it?" and "What does it mean to be Southern?"

About the Author:

Wilber W. Caldwell lives in the north Georgia mountains. After a long career in the music industry, Mr. Caldwell writes on a multiplicity of topics. His books include The Courthouse and the Depot: The Architecture of Hope in an Age of Despair and Cynicism and the Evolution of the American Dream.
