Very New Orleans: A Celebration of History, Culture, and Cajun Country Charm - Diana Hollingsworth Gessler

While this book just skims the historical information, it's well worth the read and investment for the delightful watercolors. Author and illustrator Diana Hollingsworth Gessler not only provides paintings of flowers and animals that might be found in the New Orleans area, but also provides the reader with beautifully detailed maps, sketches of people, places, artifacts, and even food.

I did glean some new information from the book that I did not previously have about the so-called Cajun Country ... but the main charm for me was in the beautiful artwork. Nicely done.
