Beyond Mayberry: A Memoir of Andy Griffith and Mount Airy North Carolina

Beyond Mayberry: A Memoir of Andy Griffith and Mount Airy North CarolinaBeyond Mayberry: A Memoir of Andy Griffith and Mount Airy North Carolina by Thomas D.  Perry
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I am a huge Andy Griffith Show (TAGS) fan! This book written by a man who grew up in Mount Airy. As you may know many people feel the show was based on Andy's home town, Mount Airy. The author, Thomas Perry, was recovering from cancer and always had an interest in TAGS so he decided to write a book detailing the similar things in Mount Airy and Mayberry (the made up town on TAGS). Perry is a historian who was written several books on the history of different people and places. Sometimes I feel he wrote like a historian and got bogged down on the details but for the most part this book is a must read for the hard core TAGS fans. He not only describes things in Mount Airy but also talks a lot about Andy and his (the author's) on life. I really enjoyed the book!
