A comprehensive history of the deep South - the bottomlands between Memphis and Vicksburg, lined by the Yazoo and Mississippi rivers - from the first white settlement in the 1820s to the present. A portrait of the development and survival of a society and economy often seen as the most extreme in the South - an area where, despite the large black majority, whites have kept their grip on power throughout every era.
