Jackson Free PressThroughout the book, McKee gives viewers a visual tour through the good and bad periods of Mississippi history. The photos give us a glimpse of war waged, floods, the effects of the Great Depression and the Civil Rights Movement. Yet, we also see the beginnings of Millsaps College and the beautiful architecture of stately southern homes with natural décor of Spanish moss and magnolia.
McKee quotes William Faulkner in her book, writing: "To understand the world, you must first understand Mississippi." The photos that she has collected help bring a little bit of that understanding to light.
