Imagine a ride with the Mississippi mockingbird as it soars through the Mississippi skies. Beginning in the land of Elvis at Tupelo, one moves down to the Piney Woods of East Central Mississippi where the ground is covered with fragrant pine straw and where Choctaw moccasins once walked the trails. Then turn south where the ocean waves swell upon sandy beaches and sea gulls hover and squawk in the breeze. Continue onward to the mansions of historic Natchez and the cotton fields of the Mississippi Delta where the blues reigns supreme. Finally, swoop down toward Old Man River, the majestic Mississippi, and skim across its yellow waters. The waters have seen war and defeat, loss and love, heartbreaks and triumphs. No sentiments need speaking. Only the sweet songs of the mockingbird are required to understand a land whose beauty is second only to the strength of its people. Through nearly 200 images printed in vivid black-and-white, with brief introductions and captions, Historic Photos of Mississippi takes the viewer on a flightpath to key points of interest in historic Mississippi.

Review:

Historic Photos Of Mississippi is rich in our states resources of, long ago timber trails and the logging industry into the rolling hills of Vicksburg. The journey starts near the birth place of Elvis Presley, weaving an intriguing path among the Piney Woods of East Central Mississippi, through the Choctaw nation. The path continues down South toward the rich antebellum homes of Natchez, the cotton fields of the Mississippi Delta, then the sweeping beautiful Mississippi River where the muddy waters have seen their share of: war, defeat, loss and love. Ms. McKee's book is hard to put down once you've picked it up, you will get lost in our wonderfully rich Mississippi Heritage. --Clarion-Ledger and Outdoors Blog.

Throughout the book, McKee gives viewers a visual tour through the good and bad periods of Mississippi history. The photos give us a glimpse of war waged, floods, the effects of the Great Depression and the Civil Rights Movement. Yet, we also see the beginnings of Millsaps College and the beautiful architecture of stately southern homes with natural decor of Spanish moss and magnolia.

McKee quotes William Faulkner in her book, writing: "To understand the world, you must first understand Mississippi." The photos that she has collected help bring a little bit of that understanding to light. --Jackson Free Press.

This is a beautiful coffee table book depicting our state. The Civil War pictures are incredible! Seeing these photos really brings Mississippi History front and center for me. No one from Mississippi should be without this book!!! --thewritersporch.blogspot

Whoever said a picture is worth a thousand words was right. That's the case with this book Historic Photos of Mississippi.

The book is filled with photographs and its divided in four sections. Each section tells part of the story of the Magnolia State in pictures. You will not find lengthy discussions about each picture but in reality they are not needed. Each photo in this book speaks for itself.

Perfect for someone who loves the state of Mississippi, and wants to reminiscence about the good ol' days. --vivirparacontarla-kayra.blogspot
