Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Holl, who writes "L'Attitude," a travel column for New Orleans's Times-Picayune, adapted her columns to produce this book of lively prose detailing interesting things to see and fun things to do in southern Louisiana and the Mississippi Gulf. Each dayride from New Orleans takes from less than one hour to four hours of travel time. Holl describes far-ranging activities such as touring historic mansions, shrimping, and watching a rodeo at the Louisiana State Penitentiary. Interspersed are historical facts, places to eat, and bits of conversation with the locals. Sidebars give additional information about each site, including how to go, the best time to go, addresses and phone numbers, hours of operation, and admission fees. A tantalizing and informative book; highly recommended.Lucille Corbo, MLS, Scranton, Pa.
