Excellent from historical documentation perspective.
I purchased the book because I was hoping to obtain information about my grandparents (born in the late 1800's), great-grandparents and great-great grandparents, who were born and/or lived in that parish. None of the 6 surnames were mentioned anywhere in the book, however. One of my great-grandfathers owned the only commercial establishment in Jacoby, LA; a general store and post office, but that was not mentioned, either. Elsewhere, I have located Census Records, Court Records, records of weddings that took place at one of their plantations and St. Stephen's Episopal church records that mention my ancestor's names, but I was hoping to get a bit of their day-to-day history from the book.

Pointe Coupee parish is often considered just a pleasant across-the-river back-country jaunt from Baton Rouge, but this (real) good regional history not only details an interesting locale but puts the locals and location firmly within the greater realm of Louisiana and Southern history. Well-written (and by the acknowledged regional expert) with a wealth of family and heritage information, the chapters on Colonial, Antebellum, and Civil War Pointe Coupee are "must-reads" for anyone considering race, class, and French ethnicity in (rural) Creole Louisiana. The information on the local Native Americans adds to our greater understanding of the First Nations of the Deep South, and all fans of Ernest Gaines would do well in reading this historical study to understand the forces forging the immense literary prowess of one of America's foremost African-American writers.
