Praise

New York Times Book Review
"As with all well-constructed memoirs, 'Mississippi: An American Journey' is enmeshed in history; in its unfolding, it becomes a compassionate meditation on this country and the South, their past, present, and future." - Willie Morris 02/11/1996

Book Jacket
"Essential reading for anyone who wishes to understand the troubled soul of the South, 'Mississippi' casts great shafts of light on a state whose history is dark and misunderstood." - Caryl Phillips

Book Jacket
"Mr. Walton's book is a large-spirited, remarkably savvy and eloquent book that completely succeeds. At once, it is a family memoir, an autobiography, a history, and an inspired deliberation upon what must be the most compelling and enigmatic place in America. I admire this book immensely." - Richard Ford
