Many have thrived as farmers in a fertile land, trappers, fishermen and shrimpers. To this day, others make their livings producing nets for the industry, managing seafood restaurants and working on oyster boats.

It is another essential book for those researching South Louisiana genealogy.

Good, interesting read about the Isleño people of LA.
Kesalard
Helpful in doing research for family tree. Good to combine with one by Gilbert C Din.

well written

I did not seems to learn anything from this book, so I did not pass it on to other members of Islenos family. Maybe it's because I learned this and much more from family lore.

A very nicely produced and well-written history of a corner of Louisiana that few outside the state know of, or about.

Miss Perez should be congratulated for telling this unique and intimate story of little-known American "founding fathers" who emigrated to Louisiana from the Canary Islanders. Samantha is busy pursuing a graduate degree in history, and we could all well look forward to her further contributions to that field. A must for ethnic collections.
Dr. Perez's book is a great first reference book for anyone interested in researching the Canary Islanders and their lives in Louisiana. The author touches lightly on a wide variety of subjects and provides an extensive bibliography for those interested in a more in-depth study. It is a book that everyone interested in learning more about the Canary Islands and their enigmatic people should have in their library.
