ISBN
9781540202833
Only in the Bayou State do Louisianans travel door to door on horseback collecting gumbo ingredients for Mardi Gras gatherings. Residents compete in egg paquer contests to see who can crack their opponent's Easter egg first. Louisiana is a place where frequent collisions with natural disasters can inspire a drink like Pat O'Brien's famous hurricane. And the state's history is filled with colorful figures like Governor Earl K. Long, whose wife committed him to a mental institution--only for him to use his political pull to inspire his own release. Elsewhere these accounts may seem odd or farfetched, but it all happens in Louisiana. Join author Sam Irwin as he details these intriguing Pelican State stories with pithy observations, humorous asides and droll determinations."Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Sam IrwinPublisher: History Press Library EditionsPublished: 10/19/2015ISBN: 9781540202833Pages: 162Weight: 0.85lbsSize: 9.00h x 6.00w x 0.44d
