Southern Folk, Plain & Fancy: Native White Social Types

Reed, John Shelton (Fellow, 1983-84)

Athens: University of Georgia Press, 1986

From the publisher's description:

Creating a sort of periodic table of the southern populace, Southern Folk, Plain and Fancy catalogs and describes the several social types-gentleman and lady, "lord of the lash" and cunning belle, fun-loving "good old boy," depraved redneck, and other figures-that have animated the region since antebellum times.
