From the Publisher
"To read this enchanting collection of reminiscences by some of my favorite fellow Mississippians about the state that each of us calls home causes me to reflect on the good fortune that has enabled me to spend my life here. These essays help to define more clearly the unique characteristics of this sometimes tormented and misunderstood but singularly alluring place called Mississippi. This volume presents a fascinating mosaic of diverse but shared memories about our cherished home state."
--Elise Winter, former first lady of Mississippi
"This endorsement of Coming Home to Mississippi, the recent homage to our beguiling state and the companion piece to the earlier collection, Growing Up in Mississippi, comes easily for me, because these thoughtfully chosen essays and rich words of remembrance remind us that our Mississippi is the most artful, soulful, southern place on earth. Charline McCord and Judy Tucker have once again brought us, through their sensitive editing process, bountiful written images that show we are resilient rascals, tenacious and quirky in our loyalty to family and sense of place, and that we will continue to return to our diverse and paradoxical Mississippi again and again."
--Malcolm White, director of tourism, Mississippi Development Authority
