Memories of a Golden Age captures life amoung the families of the River Road Region. Spanning a time period that begins in 1839 through the long years after the Civil War, memories of the very real Roman family of Oak Alley Plantation and the Aimes of LePetit Versailles are narrated by a fictional family friend. It is a glimpse into the events, customs and bits and pieces of plantation life along the Mississippi River during an era aptly identified in Louisiana's history as The Golden Age.

Although born and raised in California, marriage into a coffee/cattle pioneering family in Central America resulted in 25 years residence, six children, and the remarkable experience of life in pre-revolution Nicaragua. The family returned to the USA in 1971, following Norman S. Amort's appointment as Consul General of Nicaragua in New Orleans, and ultimately settled in La Place. Joanne has been a member of the Oak Alley Foundation staff since the end of 1983.
