I would personally recommend Dr Barry Jean Ancelet's works on Cajun culture. They are, quite obviously, from much better sources; he being among the most widely-respected experts on Cajun culture and folklore in the world. Better yet, his works are all well annotated, and will lead you to the other authors who will share our marvelous culture with you.
While you are at it, you might listen to music by Balfa Brothers, Balfa Toujours, and Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys, to add a much better spice to these tails than any of the half-baked country harmonica or lackluster stock fiddle clips Ms Renneaux's producers used.
Anyway, the stories are fun to read, but just be cautioned that not all Cajuns act like Justin Wilson and J.J. Reneaux may want you to think they do. In fact, most of them are pretty intelligent people.
