Traveling Shoes

From: Southern Cultures
Volume 19, Number 1, Spring 2013
p. 117 | 10.1353/scu.2013.0004

In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

Despite a devotion to the idyllic homestead, the southern journey circumvents the globe. The traveler takes to the road on a never-ending search for home, that ever-elusive sanctuary constructed in memory and remodeled in song. The seeker looks to the edges of the earth for enlightenment, and the sinner looks beyond for sonic salvation. Their stories feed the dreams of voices as yet unheard, singing songs of a new South that reverberate with echoes from the past.
