Thompson, a Georgia native, asserts that the South has drawn on its oldest tradition: an ability to adapt and transform itself. She spent years traveling through the region and discovered a South both amazingly similar and radically different from the land she knew as a child. The new South is ahead of others in absorbing waves of Latino immigrants, in rediscovering its agrarian traditions, in seeking racial reconciliation, and in reinventing what it means to have roots in an increasingly rootless global culture.

An exploration of how the South has changed in recent decades, made personal by the author's Georgia roots. As an Alabama native living in Seattle, I found it fascinating, but I'm not sure it'd be as appealing to someone without Southern ties.
