New Books!

In the early 1970's, two idealistic young people-Gwen Carpenter and Calvin Voisin-decided to leave civilization and re-create the vanished simple life of their grandparents in the heart of Louisiana's million-acre Atchafalaya River Basin Swamp. Armed with a box of crayons and a book called How to Build your Home in the Woods, they drew up plans to recycle a slave-built structure into a houseboat. Without power tools or building experience they constructed a floating dwelling complete with a brick fireplace. Towed deep into the sleepy waters of Bloody Bayou, it was their home for eight years. This is the tale of the not-so-simple life they made together-days spent fishing, trading, making wine, growing food, and growing up-told by Gwen with grace, economy, and eloquence.
