Delta Lady by Rita Coolidge

Original Title: Delta Lady

The two-time Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter bares her heart and soul in this intimate memoir, a story of music, stardom, love, family, heritage, and resilience. She inspired songs—Leon Russell wrote “A Song for You” and “Delta Lady” for her, Stephen Stills wrote “Cherokee.” She co-wrote songs—“Superstar” and the piano coda to “Layla,” uncredited. She sang backup for Eric Clapton, Joe Cocker, and Stills, before finding fame as a solo artist with such hits as “We're All Alone” and “(Your Love Has Lifted Me) Higher and Higher.” Following her story from Lafayette, Tennessee to becoming one of the most sought after rock vocalists in LA in the 1970s, Delta Lady chronicles Rita Coolidge’s fascinating journey throughout the ’60s-’70s pop/rock universe. A muse to some of the twentieth century’s most influential rock musicians, she broke hearts, and broke up bands. Her relationship with drummer Jim Gordon took a violent turn during the legendary 1970 Mad Dogs & Englishmen tour; David Crosby maintained that her triangle with Stills and Graham Nash was the last straw for the group. Her volatile six-year marriage to Kris Kristofferson yielded two Grammys, a daughter, and one of the Baby Boom generation’s epic love stories. Throughout it all, her strength, resilience, and inner and outer beauty—along with her strong sense of heritage and devotion to her family—helped her to not only survive, but thrive. Co-written with best-selling author Michael Walker, Delta Lady is a rich, deeply personal memoir that offers a front row seat to an iconic era, and illuminates the life of an artist whose career has helped shape modern American culture.

The Arkansas Delta by Williard B. Gatewood Jr.

Original Title: The Arkansas Delta

This collection of essays represents a large-scale attempt to characterize the long-neglected Arkansas Delta. The historical, social, economic, geographic, and cultural issues the authors address make it abundantly clear that the Delta—long thought to be a land of relative stasis—is actually changing quite rapidly. It is clear, too, that this strange land is filled with haunting contradictions. Winner of the 1994 Virginia C. Ledbetter Prize

Delta Song by Margaret Vail

Original Title: Delta Song

Delta Song, a three-part novel, is set above Vicksburg in the Mississippi Delta on the river. The action takes place with two plantations, Riverside, owned by Abraham Fair, and Green Rivers, owned by Abraham's sister, Vergie Anderson, and in a settlement along the river, informally presided over by Fred Anderson, Vergie's son. Sarah Kingsley, a farm woman, and her family are connected with both plantations. The novel is broken into a series of interconnected novellas, by using page breaks marked by dashes to make it hang together, while reminding readers that it is a kind of symphony, the song of the Delta, of various stories told by Magdalene (Maggie), as she recalled her coming of age in the Delta in light of Fred's death on the eve of the Civil Rights Movement, a time when Maggie, Fred, Father William, and a small group of youngsters virtually carry on their own reformation. The violent and tragic aftermath remind them of their own humanity and teach them their own self-identity. The river setting provides an opportunity for the romantic mysticism and pagan sensuality which runs through the novel. the novel is framed around the opening scene of Maggie's returning to Vicksburg for Fred's funeral, and the closing scene of her recognician of how the river freed him (and implicitly her and Father William). The material is a series of memoirs recalling who Fred was in Maggie's life, and leading to her final flash of recognician. Read this way, the novel becomes a kind of Bildungsroman, in which a young girl grows to womanhood, and then exile, and views her formative experiences from the sad, but liberating, standpoint of her exile. The series of vignettes are echoed to read like music, the song of the Delta.

Miss O Dell by Chris O'Dell

Original Title: Miss O Dell

CHRIS O’DELL WASN’T FAMOUS. SHE WASN’T EVEN ALMOST FAMOUS. BUT SHE WAS THERE. * She was in the studio when the Beatles recorded The White Album, Abbey Road, and Let It Be, and she sang in the “Hey Jude” chorus. * She lived with George Harrison and Pattie Boyd and unwittingly got involved in Pattie’s famous love story with Eric Clapton. * She’s the subject of Leon Russell’s “Pisces Apple Lady.” * She worked for the Rolling Stones on their infamous 1972 tour and did a drug run for Keith Richards. * She’s “the woman down the hall” in Joni Mitchell’s song “Coyote,” the “mystery woman” pictured on the Stones album Exile on Main Street, and the “Miss O’Dell” of George Harrison’s song. The remarkable, intimate story of an ordinary woman who lived the dream of millions—to be part of rock royalty’s inner circle—Miss O’Dell is a backstage pass to some of the most momentous events in rock history.
