The History of the Five Indian Nations Depending on the Province of New York in America by Cadwallader Colden [Softcover] - Price: $14.95

Colonial scholar and political leader, Cadwallader Colden was among the most learned American men of his time, and his history of the Iroquois tribes makes fascinating reading. The author discusses the religion, manners, eustoms, laws and forms of government of the confederacy of tribes composed of the Mohawks, Oneidas, Onondagas, Cayugas, and Senecas, and gives accounts of battles, treaties, and trade with these Indians up to 1689.

“No collection pretending an interest in Indian or
Colonial affairs should be without this contemporary
account.”—Library Journal

This book Consists of Part I (1727) and Part 11(1747) of The History of the Five Indian Nations, by Cadwallader Colden. The text is reprinted (with few changes other than romanization of much of the italics, omission of beginning quotation marks except at the opening of a quoted sentence or paragraph, and the correction of some obvious typographical errors) from the 1866 reprinting of the 1727 edition of Part l and from the 1747 edition of Part 11.

The People Called Cajuns: An Introduction to an Ethnohistory by James H. Dormon [Hardcover] - Price: $14.95

Rachal of Old Louisiana by Avery O. Craven [Softcover] - Price: $14.95

Note: Rachel O'Connor was born Rachal Swayze. She was the half-sister of David Weeks who built The Shadows-On-The-Teche and a half, great-grandaunt of Weeks Hall, the last Master of The Shadows . Appendix I of the book has a genealogical chart. Appendix II has a copy of the Inventory in her Succession.

Info from back cover

Rachel O'Connor was an extraordinary woman. For nearly fifty years (from 1797 to 1846), she lived on a plantation near Bayou Sara in Louisiana's West Feliciana Parish. And for twenty-five of those years, after the death of her husband, she managed the plantation alone. Although they had, as she said, "begun poor," at the time of her death she owned about a thousand acres and seventy-five slaves. Not a biography in the conventional sense, Avery O. Craven's charming little book is rather the story of Rachel and the Louisiana in which she lived. Based largely on several hundred of her letters, it tells of her day-to-day activities, her relationships with slaves and overseers, her successes and failures with crops, as well as her health and legal problems. By focusing on the life of one woman, Craven brings to light the thoughts, emotions, and attitudes of Louisianians (and other southerners) during this period. Rachel of Old Louisiana is a significant addition to the literature on the Old South.

Weeks Hall, The Master of the Shadows by Morris C. Raphael [Collectible Like-New Hardcover with dust jacket autographed by the author] - Price: $19.50

Note: Weeks Hall was born as William Weeks Hall in New Orleans on Oct. 31, 1894 and died in New Iberia, LA on June 27, 1958. He was a great-grandson of David Weeks and Mary Clara Conrad.

David Weeks lived in it for only a few days before leaving for a trip to the East Coast where he died in New Haven, CT on Aug. 23, 1834.

***
Description from the inside of the front dust jacket

The main portion of this book portrays the life of William Weeks Hall who is regarded as one of the South’s most color- ful aristocrats. This biography dramatizes Hall’s lifelong struggle for the restoration and preservation of his beloved mansion, The-Shadows-on-the-Teche, and tells of his antics as a carefree bachelor.

The author researched the many phases of his subject’s unusual career. Hall was a multi-talented individual who excelled in art, photography, gardening and conversation. He was also an alcoholic, an eccentric, and a man who perpetrated idiotic pranks on friends as well as strangers.

This volume also includes an historical account of Hall’s prominent ancestors, his association with celebrities, the important role played by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and a myriad of rare photographs.

Weeks Hall was such an interesting subject that he was constantly pursued by noted authors, feature writers and newspapermen. This accounted for the numerous stories which appeared in books, magazines and newspapers.

This is the first full length book ever written about Weeks Hall. Most of the contents are exclusive, resulting from numerous interviews and prolonged research by the author. [Note: Mr. Raphael, who also wrote The Battle in the Bayou Country, died in New Iberia, LA, on July 1, 2011 at age 93.]

In his teens he went to St. Louis as a merchant clerk. At the outbreak of the Mexican War he borrowed money, purchased wagons, and entered the Santa Fe trade. He became very successful and was noted for his efficiency and reliability. His solo return trips from Santa Fe to St. Louis were accomplished so quickly and accompanied by such dangers that he received much publicity in the nation's press. He kept journals of most of his trips, and these were printed in papers from St. Louis to New York. By 1849 Aubry was one of the leading frontier merchants...

Roadside Geology of Louisiana - Price: $14.95

After Hurricane Katrina, the fanlike pile of sand, mud, and silt that formed near a breached levee was unique in the urban environment of New Orleans. Over the 7,500-year history of the modern Mississippi River delta, however, it was just another splay deposit. Author Darwin Spearing explains the geologic forces behind the formation of the delta, shedding light on the human struggle to control the powerful river that breaches its own levees and switches its own deltas. With sections on wetland loss and land subsidence, Roadside Geology of Louisiana is a must-read for understanding the vulnerability of the Mississippi River delta to floods and hurricanes. First published in 1995, Roadside Geology of Louisiana is back in print by popular demand, with several updated sections. The introduction presents an overview of Louisiana's geologic history, and 57 road guides discuss the landforms visible from a car window including sand ridges, natural levees, oxbow lakes, and the Five Islands salt domes.

Lewis and Clark: The Maps of Exploration, 1507 - 1814 published by the University of Virginia Library [Hardcover w/ dust jacket - coffee table quality] - Price: $29.95

In competition for a mostly unclaimed continent, the various Spanish, English, Dutch, French and Portuguese explorers guarded their maps as state secrets, aware that knowledge of the landscape was the key to acquisition - this book shows and explains how language differences and miscommunication with Native Americans, led to the wide-ranging variety and inconsistency that characterize early maps of North America. - To understand the nature of the quest to the Pacific, the University of Virginia Library and the Lewis and Clark Trail Heritage Foundation have put together an exhibition of maps that were either in the personal library of Thomas Jefferson or were probably known to him. - The collection includes European productions, maps of continental penetration by French and Anglo-American explorers, as well as the map drawn in 1810 by William Clark as a result of the expedition. - Though technically inaccurate and consciously incomplete, the early maps reveal the active imaginations of their makers: from the narrow continent charted by Englishman John Farrer, in which a ten-day hike west from the head of Virginia's James River would bring one to the waterways of the "Indian Seas", to the fictional rivers conjectured by the Frenchman, Louis-Armand de Lom d'Arce, baron de Lahontan, rivers that might carry explorers from the Missouri River to the Pacific Ocean; to the notions of pyramidal height-of-land and continental symmetry that influenced Jefferson's quest for a water route to the Pacific Ocean. - Foreword by John Logan Allen who has written more than twelve books, including his landmark, three-volume work North American Exploration.

Polk's Folly, An American Family History by William R. Polk  [Hardbound, 512 pgs with numerous family photographs] - Price: $12.95

In 1680, a Scots- Irish mercenary named Robert Pollok fled war-torn Ireland with his family.  When he arrived in Maryland [now known as Polk], the only land available was a wretched piece of swampfront the locals derisively dubbed "Polk's Folly."  From this desperate and hardscrabble beginning, the Polk clan would flourish, and generate some of the most fascinating and colorful characters in American History.  Descendants include James K. Polk, the 11th President of the U.S. [1845-1849]; and Leonidas Polk who was a 3rd cousin of President Polk. Leonidas Polk was the Episcopal Bishop of Louisiana and also a Civil War General who was dubbed "the fighting Bishop."  He was killed in battle on June 14, 1864.  In 1945, his remains and those of his wife were re-interred at Christ Church Cathedral in New Orleans.

The Spanish Empire in America by C. H. Haring [softcover] - Price: $7.95

The Spanish Empire in America is an effort to bring together within the compass of a single volume what we know about the institutional history of the Spanish colonies in America from the discovery of America in 1492 down to the Wars of Independence. It is concerned with the transfer of Spanish modes of government and society from the Old World to the New, and with their evolution in a remote and very different American environment. (First published by Oxford University Press in 1947.)

C. H. Haring was a distinguished student of Latin-American history and politics.

Paul Prudhomme LA KitchenChef Paul Prudhomme's Louisiana Kitchen [Hardbound w/ dust jacket] - Price: $12.95

Here for the first time the famous food of Louisiana is presented in a cookbook written by a great creative chef who is himself world-famous. The extraordinary Cajun and Creole cooking of South Louisiana has roots going back over two hundred years, and today it is the one really vital, growing regional cuisine in America. No one is more responsible than Paul Prudhomme for preserving and expanding the Louisiana tradition, which he inherited from his own Cajun background.

Chef Prudhomme's incredibly good food has brought people from all over America and the world to his restaurant, K-Paul's Louisiana Kitchen, in New Orleans. To set down his recipes for home cooks, however, he did not work in the restaurant. In a small test kitchen, equipped with a home-size stove and utensils normal for a home kitchen, he retested every recipe two and three times to get exactly the results he wanted. Logical though this is, it was an unprecedented way for a chef to write a cookbook. But Paul Prudhomme started cooking in his mother's kitchen when he was a youngster. To him, the difference between home and restaurant procedures is obvious and had to be taken into account.

So here, in explicit detail, are recipes for the great traditional dishes--gumbos and jambalayas, Shrimp Creole, Turtle Soup, Cajun "Popcorn," Crawfish Etouffee, Pecan Pie, and dozens more--each refined by the skill and genius of Chef Prudhomme so that they are at once authentic and modern in their methods.

Chef Paul Prudhomme's Louisiana Kitchen is also full of surprises, for he is unique in the way he has enlarged the repertoire of Cajun and Creole food, creating new dishes and variations within the old traditions. Seafood Stuffed Zucchini with Seafood Cream Sauce, Panted Chicken and Fettucini, Veal and Oyster Crepes, Artichoke Prudhomme--these and many others are newly conceived recipes, but they could have been created only by a Louisiana cook. The most famous of Paul Prudhomme's original recipes is Blackened Redfish, a daringly simple dish of fiery Cajun flavor that is often singled out by food writers as an example of the best of new American regional cooking.

For Louisianians and for cooks everywhere in the country, this is the most exciting cookbook to be published in many years.

In DOMINIQUE'S FRESH FLAVORS, Dominique Macquet explores exotic culinary frontiers with the expertise and grounding of a classically trained French chef.

Page 142 has a brief history of the King Cake [There is also a recipe for King Cake in the book]

"...among the Creole desserts that are with us still is the Gateau des Rois or "King's Cake," which is inseparably connected with the Mardi Gras and with the development of the city's now-famous carnival balls. The whole complex evolved out of the Creole custom of choosing a king and queen on Twelfth Night, January 6, called Le Jour des Rois. This feast day commemorates the visit of the three Wise Men of the East to the Christ Child in Bethlehem. It was much stressed by the Spanish and even today is considered the Spanish Christmas, at which time gifts are presented to family and friends recalling the gifts of the Wise Kings. With the Creoles the day became Le Petit Noel, or Little Christmas, and following the Spanish custom there were always grand balls. A King and a Queen were chosen for the occasion, and a new royal pair every week thereafter until Mardi Gras. Ever since those early days the period between January 6 and Mardi Gras Day has been the accepted carnival season, with the calendar of activities becoming more and more crowded as each year rolls around.

The method of choosing the first king was by cutting the King's Cake ... made of brioche batter, shaped into an enormous ring and decorated with bon bons, dragees and colored sugars. Generally some good mansion was chosen for the ball. At the stroke of midnight the guests were invited to be seated around the spacious dining room table and each was served a piece of the cake with a glass of champagne. Hidden cleverly within the cake was a bean or a pecan. Excitement would be at a high pitch until the bean was found, embedded within the slice of cake by one of the guests. If the finder were a lady, she chose her king by presenting him with a bunch of violets provided along with the cake. If the finder were a gentleman, he would choose his queen by offering her the flower in his lapel... ."

books Acadian Redemption: From Beausoliel Broussard to the Queen's Royal Proclamation by Warren A. Perrin

The book is available from the Acadian Museum in Erath, Louisiana - see home page for link to order form.

Below is a summary of the book and a brief bio of the author.

Summary

Acadian Redemption, the first biography of an Acadian exile, defines the 18th century society of Acadia into which Joseph Beausoleil Broussard was born in 1702. The book tells of his early life events and militant struggles with the British who had for years wanted to lay claim to the Acadians’ rich lands. Subsequent chapters discuss the epic odyssey during which Beausoleil led a group of one hundred ninety-three Acadians from Nova Scotia to Louisiana, the New Acadia, with the hope that his beloved Acadian culture would survive.

The last half of the book discusses the repercussions of Beausoleil’s life that resulted in the evolution of the Acadian culture into what is now called the “Cajun” culture and how it led to an eighth generation Beausoleil descendant, Warren A. Perrin, to bring a Petition seeking an apology from the British Crown in 1990. This Petition was successfully resolved on December 9, 2003, by the signing of the Queen’s Royal Proclamation.

About the Author

He also helped to establish the non-profit Acadian Heritage and Culture Foundation, Inc., which operates the Acadian Museum of Erath, Louisiana. In recognition of his efforts, Perrin has been the recipient of many awards and honors, and has been the subject of many nationally-broadcast interviews in the United States, England, and Canada.
