University Press of Mississippi, Jackson, 1993. 84 pp., 40 black-and-white illustrations, 8½x9".

"Tom Rankin's photographs chart the spiritual geography of African-Americans in the Mississippi Delta. For the ancient Greeks, the unseen presences in a place determined its nature as sacred or profane. Rankin's images are haunted by palpable if human signs of the spirituality of a people in a distinct time and place."--Charles Reagan Wilson. These rich black-and-white images are charged with the energy of their subject matter as well as their maker. In churches, graveyards, and river (baptisms), Rankin documents the intensity of faith of these African-Americans in the Mississippi Delta.
