A Natural and Cultural History of the Atchafalaya Basin
My new book is a pictorial compilation of the history of the Atchafalaya Basin, the content is derived from extensive internet research and hands on research at historical libraries, face to face interviews, personal first hand experiences and field trips from over 50 years in the basin.
The book consist of 61 Chapters that cover the time periods/era’s from the formation of the Atchafalaya Basin 5000 years ago to present day.
The book is dedicated to people, who own property, live, work, Commercial Fish, Sport Fish, Hunt, Trap, Catch crawfish, Crabs, Frogs, Turtles and Alligators in the Atchafalaya River Basin.
So far the type of feedback I have received has been very positive. Most people never get tired of getting compliments, especially when you put in a lot of work to do it right.
Digging into the data, many people that responded yes, believe that the drive over the Interstate 10, i.e., the Atchafalaya Basin Bridge from the Ramah, LA. in Iberville Parish to the Henderson, LA. exit qualifies them with being familiar with the Atchafalaya Basin .
To give readers a sneak peak of what's in the book…here is an excerpt from Chapter 5 ...
