Looking south across Beach Boulevard, past the live oaks and shipyard and across the whitecaps in the Mississippi Sound, I can see Round Island and Horn. The latter rests on the horizon about nine miles out, hardly more than a white line and black scratches. This landscape is my home: I grew up in Pascagoula, a small town on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Heading west over the Pascagoula River, you come next to Gautier, then Ocean Springs, and crossing a small bay, to Biloxi. This stretch of coastline was also home to the artist and writer Walter Inglis Anderson (1903–1965). He looked south from some of those towns, through oaks and pines and across whitecaps toward that same Horn Island.
