Cleveland, MS: Delta Magazine (pub: November 2018)

Paperback Original.


Scott Coopwood, owner and CEO of Coopwood Publishing Group, has announced that the company has published a book featuring a collection of articles written by Delta native Hank Burdine. “We are thrilled to be a part of this project,” said Coopwood. “Hank’s articles, all of which have been published in Delta Magazine, are a reflection of the Delta, written in his own unique style. We always get great feedback from readers on his articles. It is an honor to be a part of this project.”

The book, titled Dust in the Road: Recollections of a Delta Boy, is just that. “I have lived an interesting and wonderful life,” said Burdine. “I simply write about what I’ve lived, and people seem to connect with that.”

With fifty articles, the book’s forward was written by author, journalist, and Garden and Gun contributing editor Julia Reed, a Greenville native and lifelong friend of Burdine. Reed encouraged Burdine to work along with her to help make the Greenville Hot Tamale Festival a “literary and culinary mash-up.”

The epilogue was written by English-born author Richard Grant, who wrote Dispatches from Pluto. Grant describes Burdine as “a writer, raconteur and bon vivant, a big-hearted, loud-drawling, whiskey- loving son of Greenville, Mississippi.”

A noted sportsman, Burdine also co-authored Panther Tract: Wild Boar Hunting in the Mississippi Delta (University Press of Mississippi) with Melody Golding and contributed to The Delta: Landscapes, Legends, and Legacies of Mississippi’s Most Storied Region (Coopwood Publishing Group). This is the sixth offering from Coopwood Publishing Group.
