Blondie, over at Blondie's Journal tagged me. The post is to post the 4th picture from their 4th folder and write about it. I think I did this earlier but seems like it was 6th folder. Memory dims with age!
I love books...especially books on the South. One of my favorite authors is Harnett Kane (1910 - 1984). He wrote many, many books about the South and I probably have most of them. Pictured below are a few that I go back and read over and over.
Plantation Parade is my favorite. He gives history and the most fascinating stories of the numerous plantation homes and families along the River Road in Louisiana.
Bride of Fortune is about the life of Mrs. Jefferson Davis. Her family was from Natchez, MS. We actually stood in the room where she and Jefferson Davis married. I love this stuff!
Natchez on the Miss. has wonderful old pictures of Natchez and stories of the families.
If you're lucky enough to stumble on his books and love the South...you will love his stories!
