    Amazing Detail - Now Where's that 3rd Edition?!?

    This is unquestionably the best resource for finding out where to go in Cajun Country. Fry and Posner dig deep and travel down nearly every back road in the region. Even locals can find new places to eat, dance and visit. Seven years after the publication of the guide's second edition, most of the places mentioned are still going strong. South Lousiana roots run deep, and the more things change around here, the more they stay the same. Still, some old-timers have moved on, and new folks have moved in, especially post-Rita (and Katrina). It's definitely time for an updated edition! I hope it's on its way, and I for one can hardly wait!

    Wonderful Guide!

    This book is the best written that I have seen about this area. It is precise and beautifully done. I've lived in Cajun country all my life and Fry and Posner have captured the true essence of this area.
