About the Book

Bayou Foamier was almost forgotten. It was too deep in the swamp and wilderness. Even at the time of Sier de Bienville, it was of no interest. Before 1803, the general Crescent City held its own enchantment Within the embrace of the United States, Nouvelle Orleans was cosmopolitan. Happy and proud of its wondrous social life. Wickedness was a rumor. Spectacular "good times" was the rule. The jovial Golden Life! It was not until the hungry heart of urban sprawl, threat the forgotten bayou was rediscovered... Only to become exclusive, posh. "Bayou Gardens."

About the Author

A Native Orleanian Maurice Frisell obtained both a public and private education and, to this day, praises his tutor VL. His baptism name is Louis due to his admiration of Robert Louis Stevenson who gave away his birthday. Maurice found the gesture brilliant and so followed suit. He is a poet, has served the Mass for years, cleaned church, cut grass with the Holy Cross fathers and sisters of the Most Holy Sacrament. He once taught the fourth grade and is a fond collector of antiques, fine art, marine art, and eighteenth- century ship models. To quote Longfellow, he states, “Seamen with bearded lips and the beauty and mystery of sailing ships.” Maurice is also an avid gardener and is forever troubling with fish pond and fountain. Pets are his heart, having owned two blue ribbon cats and two cocker spaniels, Dee and Rebecca.
