In Volume 1: The Colonial Experience, we hear how the English settlers first came to North America and how their Virginia and Carolina colonies struggled to obtain a foothold. But it would be tobacco that provided the stability they needed. And in its wake came the devilry of slavery, prosperity, and eventual war with England. It also made the South a region apart.
A History of the South continues in Volume 2: The Kingdom of Cotton and concludes in Volume 3: The Crucible of Modernism.

Good read for basic southern history
I enjoyed it very much . As a genealogist researching mainly southern history I found its material well presented, and informative. not dry, or filled with too much pontificating. The narrator's voice and dramatic presentation, kept my attention.

Great history, not great narrator
The narrator is a bit to dry and monotone for my taste by the quality of the material more than makes up for it
