Fully revised and expanded with full-color pictures. Louisianaï¿½s history is explored in this carefully researched textbook tracing the Pelican Stateï¿½s history from the native Houma and Caddo Indians through the Civil War and Reconstruction to such recent events as Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Including such multidisciplinary topics as the stateï¿½s geography and the resources of its deltas and expansive forests, the structure of the governing body from the state to the parish level, and the diverse cultural traditions and communities, the textbook enables Louisiana teachers to address all curriculum requirements.
About the Author:
A native of Louisiana, Manie Culbertson began teaching at Vinton in Calcasieu Parish and has since taught at many other schools, including Blanchard, Northwood, Linear, and Ridgewood in Caddo Parish. For much of her career she was an eighth-grade social-studies teacher. Culbertson was named one of ten teachers of distinction by the P.T.A. of Louisiana in 1973, the first year this award was given. As a coordinator of teachers, Culbertson has helped many other educators improve their performance. Even in retirement, she spends her time continuing to contribute to the world of education.
Sue Eakin, who passed away in 2009, was a professor of history at Louisiana State University at Alexandria. She spent more than four decades teaching Louisiana history, bringing a fresh approach to analyzing the state's vibrant past. Eakin's previous work included a rewrite of Solomon Northup's Twelve Years a Slave 1841-1853 that is intended for younger audiences. She resided in Bunkie, Louisiana, near the plantation where the events in Solomon Northrup's tale took place.
