St. Charles Hotel, in New Orleans, brings you to and across Canal Street, the central avenue of the city, and to that comer where the flower-women sit at the inner and outer edges of the arcaded sidewalk, and make the air sweet with their fragrant merchandise.

From the Back Cover:

One of the greatest and most celebrated Southern writers of his day, George Washington Cable (1844-1925) helped to lead the local colorist movement of the late 1800s with his pioneering use of dialect and his skill with the short story form. A Southern reformist, Cable wrote faithful portrayals of Creoles and their culture that depict the Creole way of life during the transitory post-Civil War period.

Originally published in 1879, Old Creole Days catapulted Cable to national recognition. The stories within reflect the everyday life of the New Orleans Creoles through a mixture of humor and the unique Creole patois. Cable's best-known work, Old Creole Days includes such famous stories as "Posson Jone'," "Jean-ah Poquelin," and "Madame D�licieuse," tales that are alive with the sounds and scenes of nineteenth-century New Orleans.
