Decatur runs the range from Berkeley to Mayberry. So does Garden and Gun (well, at least the "well-heeled" aspects of both).
Based in Charleston, S.C., the bimonthly magazine appeals to well-heeled Southerners with a mix of articles about music, art, literature, food, the land and, of course, hunting and fishing. It’s printed on glossy paper and features sumptuous photography and evocative writing from big-name authors like Reynolds Price, Clyde Egerton, Winston Groom and Roy Blount Jr.
The total effect is sort of Oxford American meets Town & Country.
“It’s a gutsy name,” published Rebecca Darwin said. “But if we had called it something like The South Today, it would have been such a snore.”
