New OrleansBook - 2001
Jazz music brings Bourbon Street to life, fire-eaters add some heat to the French Quarter and masked people strut their stuff at Mardi Gras. There is so much energy in this city that it is hard to contain, and who would want to? With a reputation for wild times, fantastic food and a diverse culture, New Orleans is a magical place. Relive the past with pirates on the mighty Mississippi, plantation houses and war heroes. New Orleans also invites readers to discover a city where a wedding cake can be a mansion, Royal Street an art gallery, and alligators are common sight. This book is sure to captivate with its bold color photographs and tantalizing text highlighting a city that knows how to have a good time. About the America series: As expansive as America itself, this outstanding series captures outstanding views of panoramic landscapes, brilliant city skylines, and picturesque communities.
