With just the right flourish of his pen, author James Street takes his listeners for a walk in the footsteps of the men and women who populated the small towns and piney woods of his beloved home state, Mississippi. James Street turns his singular experiences into moving and thought-provoking universal truths - seeing beyond tarnished exteriors to the treasures within; the enduring legacy of selflessness; the making of champions; and the capacity of all, no matter what age, no matter how humble, to find and lose love.
