A Southerner's Handbook

For your "southern" friends out there or for anyone who cherishes some of the "southern traditions" Garden and Gun is publishing a new book that will be released at the end of October.  And I love the horses on the cover!

Here's what the magazine is saying about their new book:
There's more to being Southern than just living below the Mason-Dixon. It takes some know-how.
