Item description for New Orleans: The Making of an Urban Landscape by Peirce F. Lewis...
In his now classic work of historical geography, published in 1976, Lewis traces the rise and expansion of New Orleans through four major historic periods. This revised and greatly expanded second edition brings that story up-to-date, illustrating how the city continues to overcome its site on the Mississippi Delta--"a fearsome place, difficult enough for building houses, lunacy for wharves and skyscrapers."
