Short overview / introduction to history of American Southeast

For a class I'm teaching next semester, I'm looking for a short book with a broad introduction to the history of the U.S.South. I was hoping for something like the "A Very Short Introduction" series. 

The class is U.S. South Family History, and the majority of time will be spent on that specific topic. But, I wanted something that gave a broad overview in order to help ground the deeper discussions and work. In the past I've taught a history of the U.S. South, so I'm aware of longer, semester-length textbooks. 

A short book, an article, or perhaps a journal roundtable set of articles, would be great.
