Entertaining book about the peculiarities of the State of my birth is marred by omissions and errors, such as:

Missing: Slapout from the list of interesting place names. Called such because the storekeeper always said he was "slap out" of something.

Error: "The Bottle" in Lee County did not get its name from a sign of a coke bottle. There was a large wooden replica of a Nehi orange soda! You can look it up on Wikipedia and see a picture.

Error: The Brewton blueberry drop can't take place SIMULTANEOUSLY with the ball drop in Times Square--they are in two different time zones. Unless the folks in Brewton, who don't like to stay up late, hold their New Year's celebration an hour early.

Error: Women certainly were eligible to receive patents in 1901. Women had filed for and received thousands of patents by then and there were also woman patent examiners!

Error: The Carnival of the Waterbugs fountain is outside of the FORMER KinderCare headquarters. KinderCare left Montgomery long before this book was written.

And there were others I didn't bother to verify. I wonder how many others I missed because I was familiar with what the author was writing about? Books like this require a little research and fact checking, and I'm disappointed when the author doesn't do so.

Interesting. Full of places to on short trips. A little too much cute comments and some curiosities are dated.
Zahisan
interesting!

Being a lifelong Alabamian, I thought I had pretty much heard it all. This book destroyed that belief! I have laughed through most of this book, scratched my head through parts of it, and made a rather lengthy list of "Must See" places to visit with my Canon XS! Wonderfully written. Great book!
