Strange True Stories of Louisiana
by George W. Cable
New Orleans born George Washington Cable (1844 – 1925) was an American novelist beloved for his endearing portrayals of New Orleans Creoles and Creole life. This is a photographic reproduction of his classic “Strange True Stories of Louisiana.” In this work, Cable offers near hypnotic tales such as the terrifying account of the haunted house of Madame LaLaurie on Royal Street and a detailed Civil War diary. This book paints the complex and nearly always fascinating life of Louisiana’s early residents.
