Published: November 1, 2013.
A personal and historical journey through Louisiana visits the Bayou State's four corners. From alligators in bayous to Zydeco music, the historical background and the author's stories of growing up in Louisiana give the reader a warm-hearted, sometimes poignant, look at a state influenced by three colonial powers--France, Spain, and England--and today's Creole and Cajun cultures.
