The Gulf Coast A Literary Field Guide by Paul Mirocha

Written especially for families (with children ages 9 and up), this collection of stories, poems, and essays explores what makes the Gulf Coast region distinct, both culturally and environmentally. Four sections cover adventures (scalloping and hurricanes, for example); great places (swamps, bayous, lakes, and beaches); reapers and sowers (from cotton farmers to berry pickers); and wild lives (focusing on alligators, egrets, manatees, and other creatures). Featuring Choctaw legends and songs from the cotton fields, this book evokes the literature, history, geography, ecology, and society of one of America's treasured regions.
