Format: Paperback
This book is well written and a very important piece of literature to Louisiana public. It is the only comprehensive book on LA that I have found that takes in geology, flora, fauna and human impact. Every citizen of Louisiana should own a copy and refer to it often. It is only a beginning, however. Those with a background in ecology and conservation may be left craving more detailed histories, but for the average citizen it is perfect. More of its kind will hopefully appear in the coming years, mirroring such tomes as A Natural History of the Chicago Region.

Buy 4 copies. One for yourself and three for a friend, family member and colleague.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great book on the history of the emergence of the natural environment in Louisiana. It is important to understand how the land and the ecology developed to appreciate the challenges we current face. Buy the hard copy - this book translates terribly into the Kindle version.
