My rating of this book may be biased. I enjoyed reading about Cajun culture and history, and even I learned a thing or two! This book may be used in conjunction with a unit on Louisiana history or culture. The many photographs of historic items and people helped to bring alive a culture that many may know very little about. However, the book did not have any footnotes or end notes, and so it should not be used as the sole reference as teaching material. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0395860954, Hardcover)

The Cajun people have a long history of having to leave their homes: first in France, then later in Canada, and even in America, families were broken apart by exile and were scattered across the continent. They were pushed farther and farther south, finally into the swamps and marshes of southern Louisiana. Here, deep in the bayous and backwaters, they have created a home for themselves that is unlike any other place on earth. In beautifully composed photographs and lucid text, Bial illuminates the spirit, resiliency, and warmth of the Cajun people.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:25:29 -0400)

Discusses the history and culture of the Cajuns, French-speaking people who settled deep in the woods and bayous of Louisiana.
