Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“What a delightful collection of essays on some of the most interesting characters in South Louisiana! Reese Fuller was a fine journalist, one whose knack for getting the story right I learned quickly to trust. And there was a reason for that. He actually listened... carefully... after he asked questions, and he allowed his informants to have their own say in their own words in his stories. This collection of stories is the result of that careful attention, not to mention the fact that the guy can write a story once he gets it.”

--Barry Jean Ancelet, Granger & Debaillon/BORSF Endowed Professor of Francophone Studies and Folklore at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and author of Cajun and Creole Music Makers, Cajun Country, and Cajun and Creole Folktales, and co-editor of Dictionary of Louisiana French as Spoken in Cajun, Creole and American Indian Communities
