From Biloxi's Beauvoir, a Greek Revival-style raised cottage that served as the last residence of Confederate president Jefferson Davis, to Gulfport's Mission-style Dantzler House, home to one of Mississippi's most significant lumber-exporting families, Fraiser and Guy have paid homage to the coastal landmarks that once lined the beach highways and transported visitors to bygone eras of unsurpassed luxury.
Impressed by the resilience of the Gulf Coast residents who survived three major wars, plague, and numerous devastating hurricanes, Fraiser writes, "We offer this book as a reminder to the world of what the vanished Mississippi coast was before August 29, 2005, and, considering the unyielding spirit of her people, what it will surely be once again."
Jim Fraiser is a federal administrative law judge in Tupelo, Mississippi. He is also the author of Mississippi River Country Tales, The Majesty of Eastern Mississippi and the Coast, and The Majesty of the Mississippi Delta, all published by Pelican.
Rick Guy is an award-winning photojournalist whose credits include Newsweek, Time, and People and The Majesty of Eastern Mississippi and the Coast. He currently works for the Clarion-Ledger in Jackson, Mississippi.
