Description
Founded in 1718 by two French-Canadian brothers for French King Louis XIV, New Orleans grew up as a Euro-Caribbean port city at the meeting point of North, Central, and South America. This "Paris on the Mississippi" became the fashionable cultural capital of the American South, home to the country's first opera house, and birthplace of jazz, while its antebellum mansions, aboveground cemeteries, and moss-bearded oaks give the city a vaguely haunted air. In her cultural and historical profile of New Orleans, Louise McKinney explores the soul of this deeply spiritual and hedonistic place, where every year the pre-Lenten Mardi Gras celebration bursts forth with outrageous excess.
