When the Mason-Dixon Line comes up in discussion, most people think of the Civil War, or segregation. Pulitzer prize- winning journalist William Ecenbarger thinks differently. In his latest book, Walkin' the Line: A Journey from Past to Present, Ecenbarger walks the accessible parts of the 365-mile-long line and seeks out people whose stories shed light on the line's historical and racial significance.
