‘Nowhere on Earth is more American than the Mississippi delta’, according to journalist and author Richard Grant, which is why he decided to make it his home. In search of the spirit of the Deep South, he takes us on a road trip exploring the eccentricities of the region, from the lobby of the famous Peabody Hotel in Memphis to the crossroads in Clarksdale, where legendary guitarist Robert Johnson sold his soul to the devil. On the way he takes in a gospel service and blues session on a porch, and meets a Chinese store owner with a deep Mississippi drawl.
