Fabulous New Orleans by Lyle Saxon( Book )

42 editions published between 1928 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 981 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is rather like a Mardi Gras parade -- a series of impressions. Each chapter is like a decorated car which tells a story. Some of the stories are brave and courageous, others are informative, or amusing, or bizarre, or fantastic. or cruel; but they are all interlocking stories--a pageant of a city...I have not attempted to write history in its strict sense although the main events of the French, Spanish and American Dominations are outlined and several chapters on the new New Orleans have been added."-- from Introduction
