About the Author Myron Tassin is a native New Orleans author and one of Louisiana's own Acadians. He worked as a public relations consultant until his retirement. Tassin considers himself a proud Acadian and believes the Acadian culture is a major component of his unique heritage. From this cultural perspective, Tassin has written several books about the rich history of New Orleans and the southern experience he reveres. He lives in Florida where he has made his vacation home a permenant residence.

Fonville Winans, whose work is widely known under the name "Fonville," is perhaps the premier photographer of Acadiana. A descendant of Louisiana's French Creoles, he traversed the bayou country for more than a decade during the 1920s and 1930s, recording the lives and folkways of the Acadian people. pdf
