About the book:

William Ferris has done extensive research on each of the folk artists from the past decade through the Center for Southern Folklore. This book takes a series of portraits and hints at the life stories of folk artists. An abiding interest of this book is the revelation of the inner lives of people you would never see in real life or would pass by you unnoticed on the street. It shows pictures of the art and artist from various parts of the Mississippi area. You read about a cane fife maker, maker of quilts, painters, needlepoint and one-string guitar maker. These artists are gradually disappearing from our culture, but they each lived grandly and put their stamp on the art scene in very special ways.
