Business manager Sweitzer and educational consultant Fields have both given seminars on retirement and living in small towns. In this useful guidebook for anyone planning to move South and live in a small town here defined as any urban settlement with up to 25,000 inhabitants the authors picked 50 locations after considering the following criteria: recreation, cultural housing, employment, education, healthcare, spiritual life, media resources, and location. The guide is arranged alphabetically by state (Alabama, the Carolinas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Virginia) and by town within each state. Each entry includes a description of the criteria and statistical charts that give details on the climate, the cost of living, median incomes, taxes, and nearest cities. Also included is a helpful appendix that indicates college towns, the geographical setting of each town, population, and more. Recommended for public libraries. George M.
