As good a time as any for me to sneak in a plug for Mike Tidwell's Bayou Farewell (2003) which I am only now getting around to reading.

Tidwell came to Louisiana expecting to write a travelog.. but ended up writing about the problem of coastal erosion and the unique way of life it is destroying.

If you read this site, odds are you've at least heard of Tidwell's book. If you haven't read it, by all means do so.
