Read full description of the books:



For the first time, prizewinning author Rick Bragg's most poignant portraits of the uniquely American experience of Southern life are combined into one volume. Along with many new essays, My Southern Journey delves into regional obsessions from college football and fishing to mayonnaise, spoon bread, and the beauty of a fish on the hook. With his insightful and deadpan sense of humor, Bragg explores enduring Southern verities and the regions' varied geographies, including his native Alabama, Cajun country, and the Gulf Coast.

Read information about the author

Ebook My Southern Journey: True Stories from the Heart of the South read Online! Rick Bragg is the Pulitzer Prize winning writer of best-selling and critically acclaimed books on the people of the foothills of the Appalachians, All Over but the Shoutin, Ava's Man, and The Prince of Frogtown.

Bragg, a native of Calhoun County, Alabama, calls these books the proudest examples of his writing life, what historians and critics have described as heart-breaking anthems of people usually written about only in fiction or cliches. They chronicle the lives of his family cotton pickers, mill workers, whiskey makers, long sufferers, and fist fighters. Bragg, who has written for the numerous magazines, ranging from Sports Illustrated to Food & Wine, was a newspaper writer for two decades, covering high school football for the Jacksonville News, and militant Islamic fundamentalism for The New York Times.

He has won more than 50 significant writing awards, in books and journalism, including, twice, the American Society of Newspaper Editors Distinguished Writing Award. He was a Nieman Fellow at Harvard University in 1993, and is, truthfully, still a freshman at Jacksonville State University. Bragg is currently Professor of Writing in the Journalism Department at the University of Alabama, and lives in Tuscaloosa with his wife, Dianne, a doctoral student there, and his stepson, Jake. His only real hobby is fishing, but he is the worst fisherman in his family line.
