Strange True Stories of Louisiana is George Washington Cable’s compilation of seven unusual, factual accounts of life and history in the area. They include tales of two French sisters who made the dangerous trek to the unsettled lands of north Louisiana at the beginning of the nineteenth century. Focusing on New Orleans, Cable adds the story of “The ‘Haunted House’ in Royal Street,” which spurs the imaginations of ghost hunters more than a century after its original writing. In the first published form, there is also a diary account from the Civil War of a Union woman trapped behind the battle lines.
A celebrated journalist of his time, George Washington Cable became best known for his writings from New Orleans during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. He was the author of numerous news pieces and books, including Old Creole Days and The Creoles of Louisiana, both published by Pelican.
One of the greatest and most celebrated Southern writers of his day, George Washington Cable (1844-1925) helped lead the local-color movement of the late 1800s with his pioneering use of dialect and his skill in the short-story form. After serving in the Confederate army, he began to write for the New Orleans Picayune. Cable has been called the most important Southern artist working in the late-nineteenth century, as well as the first modern Southern writer. A complete listing of his books published by Pelican is available by request.
