Overview

WHEN PRESSED BY THE question, 'Well, what is so great about Jackson?' we're stuck for superlatives. We don't have the South's tallest buildings or the largest population or the most money. Yet there are hundreds, maybe thousands, of things about this town that we like, or we wouldn't bother to live here."

So says storyteller and broadcaster Walt Grayson in Jackson: The Good Life , as he sets out to name a few of the many elements that make his adopted hometown such a fascinating place. It's a crossroads city, where cultures merge and creative forces are born. It's also a state capital, with all of the power and prestige that comes with being the seat of Mississippi's government.
