Mississippi Cotton, Yarbrough's debut book brings to light the complex history of rural Mississippi in the 1950's. It follows a young boy named Jake Conner on his adventure through the Mississippi Delta in 1951.

"Sharp eyes tempered with childhood simplicity," says Delta Magazine.

"This book definitely took me back to a simpler place in time where kids were disciplined, they respected their elders and the best times of their lives were spent at the picture show on the weekends and at the river on the hottest of days," says Jean.
