From the Southern Foodways Alliance, a celebration of southern food.
"Why would a boy who never harmed a soul fall under the spell of another, believe he was part of a foreign cell, and kill his friend to prove his obedience and loyalty? And how do we, the civilized members of an advanced democracy, restrain our impulse to treat tragically misguided adolescents as adult miscreants? Kathryn Eastburn addresses these questions in a riveting true story, told with clarity and honesty. Simon Says is a quick read that leaves you sadder and wiser." —Frank Ochberg, M.D., Chairman Emeritus, The Dart Center for Journalism, and originator of the "Stockholm Syndrome" concept
"An affectionate, even loving portrayal of a tradition of song and community by a journalist who came to take a quick look—and ended up staying—to feed her `heart's hunger.'" —Buell Cobb, author of The Sacred Harp: A Tradition and Its Music
