Journalist Kristina Stancil Signs “North Mississippi Murder & Mayhem” at Square Books Tuesday, June 19, 2018

North Mississippi‘s idyllic rolling hills and deep forests hide a history steeped in blood. America’s first serial killers, the Harpe brothersbrutally murdered as many as fifty people at the end of the 1700s before finally meeting their end on the Natchez Trace.

During Reconstruction, politician William Clark Falkner, great-grandfather of the author William Faulkner, was shot in the streets of Ripley by a former business partner after being elected to the state legislature.

In the 1960s, Samuel Bowers and the Mississippi Klan tried to start a national race war by orchestrating the Freedom Summer murders and the Ole Miss Riot.

Kristina Stancil details the shadowy side of North Mississippi.
