Mississippi has long been known as the home of many fine authors, and sometimes it seems that writing must just be something that is in the genetic makeup of those who call Mississippi their "home." Since I began researching my family, I have discovered dozens of valuable family history books written by those who have strong family ties in the state.
One of these individuals is Edward Hutchison, who has written a book entitled "Yesterday," a genealogical and social history of Attala County, Mississippi from 1830 to the present. The book includes biographical and anecdotal information about early Attala County residents, particularly those who lived in the southwestern part of the county.
Mr. Hutchison is a psychotherapist in private practice in Madison, Mississippi. He has earned three degrees from Syracuse University where he was a Regent's Scholar. Mr. Hutchison has taught behavioral sciences at three colleges and was elected to two terms in the local legislature in New York. His achievements have earned him a listing in "Who's Who."
A copy of "Yesterday" can be ordered for $43 which includes immediate shipping via two-day USPS Priority Shipping by mailing orders directly to:
