“Plug: Cajun Country in South Louisiana during the Great Depression”: a personal history of rural childhood in a large, churchgoing family that embraced Christian values in every aspect of their lives. “Plug: Cajun Country in South Louisiana during the Great Depression” is the creation of published author Major Bobby G. Burnett, Retired Air Force and former pastor currently serving as a volunteer chaplain and president of the senior adult group at Immanuel Baptist Church in Shawnee, Oklahoma.

“Plug” is the nickname of Bobby Burnett, who grew up during the Great Depression and experienced firsthand the Great Louisiana Maneuvers of the late 1930s and early 1940s. Plug was one of a family of eight children living in the rural Green Oak community, between Oberlin and Kinder in Allen Parish, Louisiana. Many of the people in Green Oak spoke both French and English. Some older people of the Hebert and Thibodeau families only spoke French. Although English was the language spoken in church and school, most people had to learn some French for social and economic reasons. The Cajun Country of South Louisiana had plenty of unspoiled rivers, irrigation canals, and forests for sports and entertainment and provided an ample food supply for hunters and fishermen. Life was simple and consisted primarily of family, friends, and church.

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Bobby G. Burnett’s new book is a candid and nostalgic reflection on a uniquely American childhood.
