FROM THE BACKBOOTH AT CHAPPY'S: STORIES OF THE SOUTH, FOOTBALL, POLITICS, RELIGION AND MORE is true to its title. These warm and wonderful stories are told by one of the great sportswriters of the last couple of generations. The listed subjects are covered, as well as so many more - in a manner we wish all stories were told - as in days of long ago. While this is a "MUST" for every Auburn alum, the appeal sweeps a wide swath across the South whether you cheer for The Tide, Dawgs, Rebs, or any other team that has crossed swords in War Eagle territory. It's really not a stretch that fans who love a range of reading from Lewis Grizzard to Wendell Berry will appreciate this unique treasure.
