Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Its publisher describes Ian McNulty's Louisiana Rambles as "an experiential travel guide" to south Louisiana. Transplanted Rhode Islander McNulty approaches the region with a proper sense of wonder; he clearly realizes that Creole country stands uniquely apart even from the rest of the South. His rambles in search of revelations takes him into swamps crowded with airboats and alligators; dusty dance halls and butcher shops hawkers of Cajun smoked meats. A travel narrative worth keeping.

From the Publisher

"Ian McNulty's enthusiasm for all things Louisiana is infectious and invigorating, because it is so convincing. In Louisiana Rambles, McNulty portrays the medley of sounds, smells, sights, textures and tastes that arise from a land so rich in culture, heritage, landscape and lore, along with an overabundance of hardship. McNulty provides readers with every reason to visit Louisiana, as well as all the information needed to plan a memorable trip."

--Judges' comments, Silver Medal 2011, Society of American Travel Writers Travel Book Award

"Ian McNulty captures the spirit and haunting beauty of southern Louisiana, from the bayous to the plantations. As he rambles along the back roads, he offers insights that delight those of us who grew up in the region. All of the tastes, sounds, sights, and smells come alive in this wonderful book."

--Walter Isaacson, president and CEO of The Aspen Institute in Denver and former president and CEO of CNN
