Why this book?

The interest in Blues and Jazz is growing rapidly in Europe. European audiences know and appreciate a lot of contemporary blues musicians and people want to learn about the roots of modern rock and pop-music. As a result there is a growing interest in the culture of the Mississippi Delta, the culture fromwhich the blues originated.

Although there is much info available on the internet, it is not so obvious for young European listeners to learn the overall story.  There is little literature that explains the culture of the Delta. And it is not easy for young Europeans to visit the Delta.

So, a good road book, a roadmap for visiting the Delta, fills in an important need. This roadmap gives information about locations, music and most important: living blues people in Mississippi. It tells the story of the blues and the people of the Mississippi Delta.
