Description - Time and Place in New Orleans by Richard Campanella

This 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.
