The recipes are indicative of "Southern home-cooking" that one might expect to find in the North Georgia mountains.

As a bonus and added interest to the book, the author has taken time to include thumb-nail sketches of historical landmarks and well-established businesses, many of which contributed recipes to the book.

This book should be well liked not only by cooks, but tourists and visitors to North Georgia who are looking for interesting places to visit.
