A good source of information about modern Cajun culture, this book suggests places for picnicking, walking, boating, looking at gardens, and learning how the locals get shrimp, sugar cane, and cotton. It also gives warnings, such as "Fill the gas tank before setting out" on the Creole Nature Trail. Fonseca, a freelance writer in New Orleans, describes significant houses, mansions, and slave cabins in the Cajun area. He clearly communicates the magnetism of the various bed-and-breakfast places, musical events, and folk art he decribes, and he tempts readers with "been-there" descriptions of eateries varying from those requiring reservations to grocery stores selling sandwiches. The majority of this book is devoted to Louisiana, recommending it to readers who live in or are traveling to that state. Those looking for sights in Mississippi will find more ideas in the Southeast volume of the annual Mobil Travel Guide.
