As a youngster, I spent some of my summers in Plaquemines Parish south and east of New Orleans and in Washington Parish near Bogalusa. I was overwhelmed by the exotic fauna and flora of Louisiana, and dreamed about a book like this work. I read Harnett Kane’s Bayous of Louisiana (New York: Morrow, 1943) literally until it disintegrated, but Kane’s was more historical and less zoological and botanical than Bayou-Diversity.
