Publisher's Summary

Dr. James Lavoisier was a product of the Great Atchafalaya, the torpid waters of the black water swamps and the Mississippi. But for the love of his mother, James would have been set adrift to live life as a Delta farmer, forsaking his heritage as a descendant of the Noblesse Societe, the pure lineage of French Nobility who had fled France after the defeat of Napoleon. James would struggle to extricate himself from the watery morass through education and hard work only to face the Bete Noire, the evil spirit of the swamp. In a strange turn of events, he would call upon all that life had taught him, finally returning to his heritage and the swamp to bring resolution to his struggle with the haunting demon that had ravaged his family and wealth.

Southern Story

This is the story of five generations of male descendants of a Creole pioneer settler in Louisiana. It isn't a fast paced book, but interesting nevertheless, especially if you are a Southerner and can relate to the lives of the characters. The narrator did a decent job, but the experience would be greatly enhanced by someone with a real Southern accent who can pronounce "Natchez" correctly! Overall, it's worth a credit if you like a good family yarn with several plot twists, but not a lot of action. Also, it's refreshing in this day and time, to read a book that portrays the South and its people in an honest and positive light.
