On a trip to the neighbouring towns of Florence and Muscle Shoals in Alabama, I felt privileged to be introduced to Tom Hendrix. Tom had the most powerful and moving story to tell, which I was delighted to share with readers on BBC Travel, who did a great job with the photos and layout. They did a better job on the title than I can ever do, too.
