Review:

"This localized, detailed, and lively guidebook to blues music in Mississippi recommends following by car 'a rough circle beginning and ending in Memphis' for a comprehensive tour. With maps, specific directions, and succinct historical tidbits, Cheseborough describes blues venues as well as points of special interest. A recommended listening section completes the picture."
