Product Details


“The best book on Louisiana I have ever read… Stunning, beautifully written.” –James Lee Burke, author of White Doves at Morning

 “A remarkable book…. Tidwell knows how to tell a good story, and he tells this one smartly.”–The Times-Picayune

 ”Tidwell… tells [the story] with great passion for the land and for the Cajun, Houma Indian, and Vietnamese people who live and work on these waters. [He writes] about the people with great affection.”- Rocky Mountain News

“Shocking…. The calamity that lies ahead is…underscored by Tidwell’s bittersweet rendering of…a way of life that is slowly dying.”–San Francisco Chronicle

“A tale both enlivening and sad… What makes Bayou Farewell so appealing is that Tidwell allows us to experience life on the bayou—and thus better appreciate what is being lost—through the lives of its chief residents, the Cajuns.”- The News & Observer
