A beautiful collection of photos of historic plantation homes in Louisiana. I would have liked more information about the homes. When the author talks about certain interior features in the homes, it would have been nice to have photos to accompany the description, but perhaps the owners did not allow interior photos to be taken. I also didn't need the definition of bousillage explained in every house description. Once was enough. Still, the pictures are beautiful.
