"Few people realize that Memphis, in terms of square miles, is today bigger than Atlanta, Birmingham, and St. Louis combined. It is a geography of many places, from famous historic landmarks such as Beale Street, Graceland, Sun Studio, Cotton Row, the Lorraine Motel, and the Peabody Hotel, to places associated with the new Memphis such as Mud Island, AutoZone Baseball Park, the Pyramid, St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital, and FedEx's World Technology Center. It is also a city of neighborhoods, schools and universities, libraries and parks, farm landscapes and beautiful natural areas." "In Memphis photographer Larry E. McPherson artistically renders the city's diverse and spacious soul, past and present. His 122 color images make Memphis and its environs come alive, and in accompanying captions the photographer provides an extra lens on the city's history. Esteemed scholar of southern culture Charles Reagan Wilson also gives a splendid overview of the city in an introduction that recounts the evolution of Memphis as a place, from riverside to countryside." "Memphis is a living document to one of America's greatest cities. It is also a love affair with a place that Larry E. McPherson calls home. It is sure to provide readers with an enduring glimpse into what makes Memphis a true crossroads of the South."--BOOK JACKET.
