Lafitte of Louisiana
by Mary Devereux
Was Jean Lafitte a pirate, a hero, a patriot or a scoundrel? Whatever the true nature of the man, he has become the romanticized Robin Hood of early Louisiana history. Mary Devereux’s highly enjoyable account displays clearly why “legend” is the proper word for the colorful and larger than life, Jean Lafitte. Photographic reproduction of the 1902 edition.
