I relocated to Indiana from the Chicago suburbs 4 years ago. I hear most Hoosiers don't consider Indiana a Southern state, but I think that's just because they compare themselves to the folks from Kentucky and Missouri. From a Northerner's perspective, there's definitely a Southern flavor to the culture here and sometimes I find I have to shift my frame of reference to understand my neighbors.
I saw the Yellow Dogs book and thought it might be a fun way to pass time in a car ride. Checking through it quickly, I found 54 pages of questions, and 71 pages of answers. Should I conclude that examining Southern culture produces more answers than questions?
Here's a few samples of the Q & A:
"Americana, Brazil is home to what group?"Why Brazil?
"Descendants of some two thousand Confederate emigrants who went to Brazil after the civil war..."
"What nasty critter... is still being used today by reconstructive surgeons?"Is there another, larger breeder of leeches... for another purpose?
"Leeches... Biopharm, a company based in Charleston, SC, is the largest breeder of leeches used for this purpose."
