Ice Tea and Elvis: A Saunter through the Southern States
From Memphis, Tennessee to Montgomery, Alabama and on to the limits of the Mason-Dixon line, the southern states of the USA have been mythologised by generations of southerners and northerners alike. Travelling by car, bus, train and plane, this is an exploration of the eleven states that made up the Confederacy, from Graceland to Miami Beach, Coca-Cola to Martin Luther King, Jr. and from the Smoky Mountains to the Mississippi Delta. Although still characterised by God and guns, heat and history, the South is as much a state of mind as a physical place.
