Southern Women: More than 100 Stories of Innovators, Artists, and Icons

For too long, the Southern woman has been synonymous with the Southern belle, a “moonlight and magnolias” myth that gets nowhere close to describing the strong, richly diverse women who have thrived because of—and in some cases, despite of—the South. No more. Garden & Gun’s Southern Women: More than 100 Stories of Innovators, Artists, and Icons obliterates that stereotype by sharing the stories of more than 100 of the region’s brilliant women, groundbreakers who have by turns embraced the South’s proud traditions and overcome its equally pervasive barriers and challenges.

With more than 140 detailed and delicious recipes both classic and modern, this beautifully photographed cookbook covers every angle of home cooking, whether you’re feeding your family or entertaining a crowd.
