Here is another selection recommended by Charlotte, Atchafalaya Houseboat: My Years in the Louisiana Swamp by Gwen Roland. Link to the author's interview on NPR here.
Charlotte actually emailed the writer and within minutes got a response. Gwen informed her that she had a story called Basket Case that was just published in Delta Sky Magazine about her learning to make oak baskets at a living history village.
Enjoy the weekend. Don't forget The Mermaid Chair at 9:00PM tonight on Lifetime Channel.
