A beautifully written collection of Creole tales presented in manner to elicit daydreams of days long gone. In a time when the long, hot days of old New Orleans offered little in the way of relief or entertainment, children would gather with elderly relatives to listen to the stories of the past. This story-telling manner brings to life Kings "Balcony Stories" and provides a truly enjoyable reading experience and look into the past of romantic New Orleans.
