A rich collection of true stories celebrating the unique relationship between humans and their canine companions, penned by some of today's top writers, including Jon Meacham, Roy Blount Jr., Dominique Browning, and P.J. O'Rourke. Editor-in-chief David DiBenedetto (proud owner of a Boykin spaniel) and the editors of G&G have gathered the most memorable stories, as well as original pieces, in this collection of essays written by some of the most notable dog owners in literature and journalism. Good Dog offers beautifully written stories of dog ownership, companionship, friendship, and kinship. From the troublemakers who can't be fenced in to the lifelong companions who won't leave our sides, this poignant anthology showcases man's best friend through all of his most endearing—and sometimes maddening—attributes. By turns inspirational and humorous (just like the dogs we love), Good Dog is a must-have collection for dog lovers everywhere.
The Southerner's Cookbook
From Garden & Gun—the magazine that features the best of Southern cooking, dining, cocktails, and customs—comes an heirloom-quality guide to the traditions and innovations that define today's Southern food culture, with more than 100 recipes and 4-color photography throughout. From well-loved classics like biscuits and fried chicken to uniquely regional dishes such as sonker (Piedmont, North Carolina's take on cobbler) or West Indies Salad (which, in fact, halls from Mobile, Alabama), each recipe in The Southerner's Cookbook tells a story about Southern food and its origins. With contributions from some of the South's finest chefs, a glossary of cooking terms, and essays from many of the magazine's most beloved writers, The Southerner's Cookbook is much more than simply a collection of recipes: it is a true reflection of the South's culinary past, present, and future.
