KIRKUS REVIEW

Some five years or more ago a beguiling small book was published entitled Madams Teussaint's Wedding Day; the background was the Louisiana bayou country. The following year I spent an enchanted day up the Bayou Teche, and heard tales of some of the other fabulous sections, where old world ways of life persisted....Enough for me as a feeler: I've sought out what little was to be found on the subject. And now -- in one volume, the wonderland is revealed, but the mystery persists, the enchantment deepens. Kane has given us -- for this region -- the sort of treatment of the best of the Rivers series; he has captured the feel of this exotic section, the tempo and mood of the people, the way of life, the livlihoods, the legendary and historic characters. An enchanting book.
