The Accidental City: Improvising New Orleans


The Accidental City: Improvising New Orleans
America's most beguiling metropolis started out as a snake-infested, hurricane-battered swamp. Through intense imperial rivalries and ambitious settlers who risked their lives to succeed in colonial America, the site became a crossroads for the Atlantic world. Powell gives us the full sweep of the city's history from its founding through statehood.
