DELTA

 Two forces created the fertile Mississippi River delta: the river’s power and manmade dams. As the water backed up behind the series of levees built along her length, rich soil spread across the delta’s farmlands. Most of this land is now used to grow cotton, soybeans, and catfish (in ponds). Stop in Clarksdale to review the history of such Blues greats as BB King, Charley Patton, and John Lee Hooker. View cypress sloughs and rabbits, deer, and waterfowl at the Morgan Brake National Wildlife Refuge.
