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.
