What People are Saying About This

Robert Gramling

This book will appeal to a wide audience, from those who read it for enjoyment to those who use it as a textbook or research tool.... Gomez's clear, almost lyrical style is a pleasure to read, and the imagery captures the essence of the Chenier Plain.
