Betsy Swanson spotlights the areaï¿½s early Indian life and archaeological sites and historic landmarks, extinct and extant, and the roles they played in the progress of the region. Colorful historical figures who appear in these pages include the pirate Jean Lafitte, revolutionary Nicolas Chauvin de la Freniï¿½re, and the reclusive philanthropist John McDonogh.
