REVIEW è Bayou Farewell The Rich Life and Tragic Death of Louisiana's Cajun Coast CHARACTERS µ 3SW.CO ↠ Mike Tidwell Ans and the rich cultural history that makes it unlike any other place in the world But seeing the skeletons of oak trees killed by the salinity of the groundwater and whole cemeteries sinking into swampland and out of sight Tidwell also explains why each intro. This is one of the best non fiction books I ve read Tidwell does an excellent job of describing a very complex environmental and social problem with many of the details included while making it interesting and easy to read His experiences in the Bayou with the peoples that live on the land there are phenomenal This book is an excellent suggestion for anyone interested in either environmental social or travel stories I would like to have all Americans read it
