A History of Pointe Coupee Parish, Louisiana, Amazon Prime Paperback

A History of Pointe Coupee Parish, Louisiana: Brian Costello’s research and expertise shine in this consummate history. As an updated and greatly expanded edition of his book of the same title originally self-published in 1999, this Murray G. LeBeaux memorial edition contains an oral history by LeBeaux, as well as 200 heirloom photographs, fully documented text and an index. Pointe Coupee is the home of writer Ernest J. Gaines, and birthplace of national figures such as Lindy Boggs, General Russell Honore, and Major General John Archer Lejeune for whom Camp Lejeune is named. New Roads, False River, and Parlange Plantation are the nucleus of a part of the state which developed its own unique mix of Creoles and Americans, the Creole language is still spoken there, and fishing, hunting and water sports attract outdoorsmen.
