About the Book

"I know a lot of people swear by the mysterious healing power of chicken soup. But I think they are mainly Yankees. Here in the South, a mess of butter beans is what we look to for physical and spiritual rejuvenation. They're a sure cure for the blues."

Joe Adams is a columnist for the prestigious North Carolina newspaper, The Gaston Gazette. Butter Beans for the Soul is a collection of his hilarious editorials for people with small-town hearts.

A sampling of butter bean substitutes for the weary spirit include:

  • RC Cola and Moonpies
  • Singing, even if you stink
  • Touring families of midgets
  • And, especially for fans of Dr. Atkins, the pig-eating diet.

Butter Beans for the Soul also clears up some of life's most problematical questions. Wondering how to fast from fast food? Concerned about growing hair like a man? What dogs are best for the deaf? Joe Adams has the answers in one convenient location.
