Richard Grant's amazingly-popular tale of a Brit's personal, cultural and musical experiences in the Mississippi Delta — a foreign land so close to home — captures the colorful characters, historical challenges and inherent charm of the Land Where Blues Began like few modern books. It's no surprise that it is Cat Head's all-time best seller and recommended by locals and tourists alike. - Roger Stolle, Cat Head
From the web: “The truest book about the Mississippi Delta since Rising Tide.” - Tony Horwitz, author of Confederates in the Attic. “[Grant] succeeds, and with flair. His empathic manner, reportorial talent and eye for the unexpected detail make this a chigger-bitten trip that entertains as much as it informs.” - The New York Times Book Review.
