This is a sweet book telling the tale of two friends who decide to road trip it through Sherman's destructive march on the South. They start off in the suburbs of Atlanta and go from there.
Their book is along the lines of a Bill Bryson travelogue - little anecdotes on life mixed in with tidbits of history trivia. But there's no "Sass". These are wholesome ladies telling stories filled with gentle humor and good will.
A fun book for someone who wants to learn a bit more about history and the South without it being in textbook form. I enjoyed learning more about a town I currently live in, some historical knowledge I didn't have.
The book is chock full of pictures too!
