The Storied South

The Storied South


Drawn from the invaluable documentary record created by folklorist William Ferris, The Storied South features the voices–by turn searching and honest, coy and scathing, and always brilliantly illuminating–of twenty-six of the most luminous artists and thinkers in the American cultural firmament, from the likes of Eudora Welty, Pete Seeger, and Alice Walker to William Eggleston, Bobby Rush, and C. Vann Woodward.

And thanks to an included CD and DVD, their voices leap off the page and come to life.
