by Laura Locoul Gore (Author), Norman Marmillion (Author), Sand Marmillion (Author) & 0 more. It is centered on the family of Laura Plantation, a Creole sugar plantation just west of New Orleans. The bulk of the book is the memoirs of Laura Locoul Gore, who, born into the family and the business, chose to leave it for the world of the man she loved. Eventually, when her own children ask about her life, she wrote down everything she could remember about the old days at Laura.

It is centered on the family of Laura Plantation, a Creole sugar plantation . This book is a must have for southern plantation buffs. I felt like Laura was personally introducing to each member of her family.

It is centered on the family of Laura Plantation, a Creole sugar plantation just west of New Orleans. Not sorry I bought this one and it will definitely stay in my collection.

While reading I learned a lot about Laura, her family members, and the history of the plantation but I was disappointed in This memoir and documentation of Creole plantation life by Laura Locoul Gore was something I was very interested in reading after having visited The Laura Plantation on a trip to Louisiana myself.

The writer grew up in the latter part of the 19th century and the early part of the 20th century on the Laura Planation in Louisiana about an hour plus west of New Orleans. It is not a dairy or a memoir because the piece was written many years later recalling from her memory of events. It is a intimate glimpse into the daily life of a Creole plantation of Louisiana. Events are vividly written but organization wise, it is extremely loose and unorganized. It is what it is and that does not detract from being an important document for that period and place. Laura was a working plantation for many decades and mostly run by a succession of women. It is also worth a visit.

Very interesting read. I recently toured the Laura Plantation and find this book a great follow-up, with additional stories and information.

Wonderful book to read after visiting the house - love to get the feel of the place so I can be transported when I read!

For some reason this didn't "resonate" with me, maybe because of the Creole thing. However, it was an interesting account of how they lived and many would find this a charming account of that life.

Book was as advertised -- perfect except it had something written on the fly sheet. Imagine my surprise when I got the book and opened it to the flysheet and it was addressed to "Dorothy" -- my name. It was a coincidence, but what a coincidence. Book was in great shape and I am looking forward to beginning on it today (had to finish my other 2 books). I glanced through it already and it looks good.

I really enjoyed this book. I am always interested in social history but sometime it can be dry to read, this was not. It was a fast read, both entertaining and educational. It was a fascinating look at the Creole lifestyle before and after the Civil war. Everything is so beautifully described you feel like you have been there and know these people personally. Only problem is now I want to go visit Laura Plantation!

This book was very informative about life on a sugar plantation. I bought the book to research and understand the characters and home of Laura Locoul before visiting the sugar plantation owned and managed by her family for hundreds of years. It really made the difference knowing about the plantation and those who lived there.
The author shares her memories of life on a rural plantation, and of trips to New Orleans and later to New York City. You see fairly early on that she longs for a different life than being isolated on a planation, especially as family feuds and changing times destroy past prosperity. I love that this book was written by a woman of her times, without putting a politically correct spin on her feelings. Sometimes the writer seems like a modern woman, and at other times like a citizen of a world long gone. If you like your history down to earth, this book is for you.
