Share Article

New high quality coffee table book from Granny Apple Publishing is beautiful, fun, heartfelt, spiritual, warm, educational and inspiring by the author of the 1999 best-seller "Soulfaring Then and Now"

The multi-billion dollar Louisiana fish and shellfish industry would dwindle to almost nothing without the all-important breeding grounds in the tidal marshes, swamps and bayous.

This high quality, coffee table book from Granny Apple Publishing is a wakeup call to America to realize the enormous harm that has been done to the Gulf Coast wetlands. It is also a plea to save them. As New Orleans native Cintra Austin’s awareness of the tragedy of the vanishing Louisiana coastline grew, she was disturbed by widespread ignorance and became convinced that an attractive book with brilliant photography might catch people’s attention and help spread the word, literally making a plea to save one of the most productive and valuable ecologic and economic areas in North America.

Cintra claims that writing about her passion for Louisiana was fun, and it’s clear that she enjoyed it. Each section sparkles with personal reminiscences of what growing up in south Louisiana, New Orleans in particular, meant to her.

The book is beautiful, interesting, informative and filled with detailed research, interspersed with delightful personal anecdotes that show the Author’s deep love for her homeland. Beginning with descriptions and photography of the wetlands’ sheer beauty, the author moves on to discuss the impact of losing them. The multi-billion dollar Louisiana fish and shellfish industry would dwindle to almost nothing without the all-important breeding grounds in the tidal marshes, swamps and bayous. These same marshes and swamps and the shrubs and hardwood forests that grow within and behind them also play a crucial role in protecting coastal cities. The unique Cajun/Creole culture and New Orleans itself are in jeopardy without widespread awareness and preventive measures.
