America's Third Coast Series

Books in this series offer important insights on Gulf Coast history, life, and culture that focus on areas and issues either neglected entirely or mentioned only in passing elsewhere. In particular, the Series is designed to highlight the economic activities and the environmental stewardship of the residents of this culturally diverse geographic region. Books explore major relevant topics in a format accessible to policy makers, residents desperate for information about their rapidly deteriorating environment, and an increasingly alarmed and, in many instances, outraged general public.

Series editors: Carl A. Brasseaux, Louisiana State University and Donald W. Davis, Louisiana State University

This series is supported with funding provided by the Louisiana Sea Grant College Program (LSG) under NOAA Award #NA14OAR4170099. Additional support is from the Louisiana Sea Grant Foundation.
