Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0807127310, Paperback)

Few thoroughfares in America are as rich in history and culture as Louisiana's River Road between New Orleans and Baton Rouge. Yet for many travelers and even natives, traces of that past, veiled by time and change are frustratingly difficult to discern. In this revised and expanded edition of her definitive guide to the fabled route, Mary Ann Sternberg provides up-to-date information on sites and attractions along the river as well as the tales and local lore that still make the River Road one of the most colorful destinations around.

The River Road--actually two roads, one on each side of the Mississippi River--is the product of more than three hundred years of documented history and culture. The centerpiece of the book is a mile-by-mile guided tour--upriver on the east bank and downriver along the west--that details the past of scores of overlooked venues. The River Road's allure goes far beyond its parade of antebellum mansions to reveal a wondrous past and present awaiting discovery with this book in hand.
