Revisit the timeless mystery, magic, and majesty of the French Quarter and its legendary gardens with this lush collection of photographs. An emotional narrative about the heart and soul of New Orleans and the city’s ability to triumph over sorrow accompanies hundreds of pictures taken before and after the life- and landscape-altering Hurricane Katrina; a special section presents the classic work The Secret Gardens of the Vieux Carre;, which offers mesmerizing images of the verdant gardens concealed behind brick walls and iron gates in the Quarter. The importance of fundraising for and conscientious rebuilding of New Orleans is stressed throughout the book, making this a gorgeous book—with a purpose.
