There’s just nowhere else but South Louisiana to find real knee-slapping, crowd-hooting Zydeco music. Even the big-city chefs can’t cook up a Cajun meal the way they do at the roadside restaurants deep in the bayous of Acadiana. Likewise, no other guide matches the amount of in-depth information presented in Cajun Country Guide. It’s a study of Cajuns that tells visitors how to find the sights, sounds, and flavors of one of America’s most culturally unique regions.
Take a vacation to a part of our own country that, in some places, didn’t even speak English until nearly fifty years ago. While modern technology is weeding out some of the one-of-a-kind qualities of this subculture, not all of them are gone, or even hard to find, if you know how to hunt for them. And there are no better hunters than authors Macon Fry and Julie Posner.
With the handy maps, reviews, and recommendations packed into the Cajun Country Guide, a trip to the bayous won’t leave one feeling like a visitor, but more like a native who has come back home.
