Time and Place in New Orleans
Past Geographies in the Present Day
By (author) Richard Campanella
Time and Place in New Orleans by Richard Campanella
Book DescriptionThis book proves that New Orleans is indeed defined by its location. Sandwiched between the imposing Lake Pontchartrain and a curve in the mighty Mississippi River, the original settlement clung to a narrow crescent of high ground; this situation inspired the nickname, the Crescent City. From the city's problematic founding (the site was moved six times in twenty-three years) to its present reliance on century-old pumping stations, Richard Campanella explores the influence of New Orleans' singular topography and geography on the city's growth and development.
