The most comprehensive and entertaining guide to a complex and fascinating place has been updated with the most current information available on the Pelican State. The Pelican Guide to Louisiana includes everything worth seeing in the state. Concise entries, arranged geographically, describe notable sites or bits of interesting local history, while longer essays provide lyrical, evocative impressions of such things as the Christmas bonfires along the Mississippi, the Catahoula Hound (the web-footed official state dog), the New Orleans streetcars, and the making of a pirogue boat in Cajun country. The book is divided into sections focusing on the distinctive areas of the state. One part concentrates on the swampy bayou country, home of Cajuns, crawfish, alligators, and oil wells. A section on the New Orleans metropolitan area covers all the sights of the Crescent City and its far-flung suburbs. The chapter on the northwest part of the state describes historic Natchitoches and Shreveport, as well as old plantations dreaming beneath the moss-hung oaks. Notes on local fairs and festivals help travelers plan when to visit. Detailed maps make navigating simple, and a complete index cross-references attractions and locations. Filled with charming passages and intriguing facts, The Pelican Guide to Louisiana is a useful guide for visitors to the state, or a fascinating volume for the armchair traveler.
