Customer Comments and Reviews

"I watched this DVD last night and enjoyed it very much. There were some things showcased that I have never seen in Louisiana. I get around to a lot of small towns but I still saw some new things in the video. Great color and the photography was excellent. Great job!"

DVDDALA REVIEW: Discoveries America: Louisiana
""Welcome to Louisiana...Set Your Clocks Back a Hundred Years': in parts of this beautiful state, it's still easy to imagine the year is 1905 instead of 2005. One of two new entries in Jim and Kelly Watt's acclaimed, high-definition filmed Discoveries America series, Louisiana highlights places and events primarily in the southern part of the state, where in the midst of the hustle of modern New Orleans, for example, horse-drawn carriages are still a favored mode of transportation, and citizens of places like Natchitoches and Eunice seem to embrace a slower, quieter way of life.

Viewers will learn the differences between Acadian, Creole, and Cajun heritages, tour a Tabasco bottling plant, stroll through a nature preserve where alligators lounge along the path, and see how crawfish are harvested. Other highlights include a visit to New Orleans' famous (and during Mardi Gras infamous) French Quarter, a stop at the Kaffie Frederick General Mercantile Store in Natchitoches, and a stroll along the Creole Nature Trail."
