John Bentley Mays left his ancestral region because, like many members of his generation, he believed a larger, more interesting life awaited him beyond the American South. The distance he put between himself and his Southern home-land widened until he eventually settled in Canada and into modern metropolitan life. Decades later, on a spring morning in 1990, the death of his Aunt Vandalia summons him back to the South, and he experiences an awakening of feelings and attitudes linked to his early life and family heritage, and he begins an extensive exploration of his past.
