From the dust jacket-
"Here is Louisiana for you- its swamps and bayous, its cane and cottonfields, its people and their history. Sixty-four pages of gravure illustrations and many maps take you 'up and down and all around' in this natural wonderland- into Creole kitchens, down the streets of New Orleans during Mardi Gras, and into the deep, dark cypress swamps."
