Summary
Presents a portrait of the iconic city that lies at the mouth of the mighty Mississippi. Looks at its history as a small French settlement, a cosmopolitan mecca, a sensual, mysterious refuge, and a product of its geography as both a vital port and a city walled in on almost all sides by water and vulnerable to floods and hurricanes. Focuses primarily on the century from Reconstruction to school desegregation in the 1960s, while exploring New Orleans' unique and distinctive culture and illuminating its central place on the American landscape
