Born and reared in the
Mississippi Delta, Hank Burdine was a road builder and gentleman
farmer. After a sixteen-year walkabout with his family in the Sangre de Christo
Mountains of Southern Colorado and the Emerald Coast of the Florida Panhandle,
Hank returned home to his beloved Delta where he lives on his farm. His late
wife Sallie always said, “Hank never really left the Delta, as he returned
often to water his roots.” Highly involved with the Mississippi
River, he serves as a commander on the Mississippi Levee Board.
Hank has co-authored Mississippi
Delta, The Flood of 2011, and THE DELTA:
Landscapes, Legends, and Legacies of Mississippi’s Most Storied
Region with Coopwood Publishing and Delta Magazine.
