Southern Is…

by Mary Norton Kratt
illustrated by Bill Drath

“There’s nothing very different about Southerners. . .except for the way they think, act, and feel.”

Southerners can be perplexing to outsiders and amusing to themselves. North Carolina native Mary Norton Kratt deftly and simply delights the reader with images of the Southern state of mind and being.

A warm and whimsical book that will be bought and enjoyed on both sides of the Mason-Dixon line.
