Few states can match Louisiana in terms of rich history, colorful characters and strange occurrences. It was home to America's first mound builders, the birthplace of the nation's modern army and the scene of a dismaying number of natural disasters. Louisiana's story also includes the weird and bizarre. Fish and worms have rained from the sky, sea serpents have been spotted off its coast and Bigfoot is said to roam the woods. From stampeding squirrels and bayou hippos to Native American hunters and sunken galleons, this collection of tales will entertain anyone who enjoys outdoor adventures and offbeat history. Award-winning author Dr. Terry L. Jones has tapped into his broad knowledge of Louisiana and his own outdoor experiences to produce this engaging book.
