More About This Book

Overview

A lively free-hitting narrative . . . written with a proper appreciation of the grotesque humor of many of its episodes . . . but also with the proper appreciation of the political significance . . . for the rest of the United States.

New York Times Book Review
This book deserves to be widely read.

Library Journal
Nothing like the regime of Huey Long has ever been enacted on American soil before. Only a patriot of the staunchest character could stand up to the power of Huey and the threats and reprisals which he used so freely.
Those who were willing to do so paralleled the acts of America's bravest patriots at any stage of American history.

Nearly all the books on this subject end with the death of Huey Long. Louisiana
Hayride continues through the years of scandals which ended in my election in
1940. Huey's prediction that his successors would never be able to wield his great power without going to jail was born out by events described in this book.

This is the story of the sowing of the wind, but the major part of the book is devoted to the reaping of the whirlwind. In this telling, Louisiana Hayride is unsurpassed.

It is a story for all Americans.

From the forward by Sam Houston Jones
Governor, 1940-1944
