Synopsis:

  To most Americans, Mississippi is not a state but a scar, the place where segregation took its ugliest form and struck most savagely at its challengers.  But to many Americans, Mississippi is also home.  And it is this paradox, with all its overtones of history and heartache, that Anthony Walton—whose parents escaped Mississippi for the relative civility of the Midwest—explores in this resonant and disquieting work of travel writing, history, and memoir.

Traveling from the Natchez Trace to the yawning cotton fields of the Delta and from plantation houses to air-conditioned shopping malls, Walton challenged us to see Mississippi's memories of comfort alongside its legacies of slavery and the Klan.  He weaves in the stories of his family, as well as those of patricians and sharecroppers, redneck demagogues and martyred civil rights workers, novelists and bluesmen, black and white. Mississippi is a national saga in brilliant microcosm, splendidly written and profoundly moving.

From the Inside Flap: Traveling from the Natchez Trace to the cotton fields of the Delta, Walton assesses Mississippi's legacy of nostalgia, bitterness, and heartache. He weaves in the stories of his family, as well as those of slaves and Confederate generals, redneck demagogues and civil rights martyrs, writers and bluesmen, black and white. 12 photos. 304 pp. Author tour.
