From the back of the 128-page sourcebook:
"I Wish I Was In Dixie!
Now your posse can make that wish come true. From the front lines of Northern Virgina, to the hidden dangers of Florida's Everglades, Back East: The South contains everything you need to make a trip to the Land of Cotton complete.
Journey to Richmond to find out why the Confederate capital has been dubbed "The City of Graves." Take a whirlwind tour of the Carolinas, where some say that Blackbeard has returned, the dead rest uneasily, and witches and giants stalk the remote hollers of the Appalachians. Your trip ends in the Deep South, where the only thing hotter than the weather is the trouble your hero can get in if she doesn't watch her step!
This 128-page sourcebook for the Origins Award-winning Deadlands roleplaying game is packed tighter than boll weevils in a cotton bale with information - including new Edges, Hindrances, and even a few new shootin' irons - all for your enlightenment and edification.
It's time for your heroes to saddle up and head east - Back East that is!"
