From the Publisher

"New Delta Rising is a stunning portrait of the Mississippi Delta that captures both the voices and faces of a people, their homes, and their landscape with hauntingly beautiful images. Magdalena Solé is an exceptionally gifted photographer whose rich, color images bring clarity and new understanding to this complex region." --William R. Ferris, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

"This book is a tribute to the people of the Mississippi Delta. . . . Getting to know [them] has made me optimistic about facing the challenges of the future. It is my hope that readers of this volume will be heartened and inspired by the lives represented here." --Barry H. Smith, M.D., Ph.D., director of the Dreyfus Health Foundation
